Repairs are best added via the Sales Screen. As with sales of any type, before you can include a repair in a sale, a major category or categories must be created and dummy SKU numbers for repairs must be in the system.
Dummy Sku's are needed because every line on the sales screen needs a Sku number. They are called Dummy Sku's because unlike a Sku which is on a tag for a ring, repairs do not have a price tag.
The dummy SKU numbers will automatically be created when one or more class codes for repairs are added in the Enter/Edit Major Class Codes feature. You could have just one class code for repairs or you could categorize repairs by setting up different class codes. For example, you could have separate class codes for watch repairs and jewelry repairs, and you could use different SKU numbers to further differentiate the types. Alternatively, you could just create one SKU number and put all your repairs under this one number to simplify things.
The sample class codes and dummy SKU numbers below are just to give you ideas. You must set up your system to suit the needs of your store.

In the Major Class Codes Maintenance program, the class codes that you are using for repairs must be either repair category 1 (for regular repairs and work) or repair category 2 (for custom work where you want to manufacture a piece from findings). Look in the manual under Class Code Maintenance for help in setting up these class codes.
