This document is intended for Tourplan NX clients and identifies functionality changes included in recent patch releases. It will be added to as further releases are made relating to this particular version. Note: Any development-related queries will continue to be responded to by your local Tourplan Support Team via the standard ticketing process.
Messaging Substitution Code (Supplier Address fields)
Supplier Address fields have had the messaging functionality amended to include :CP, a conditional text function which allows the fields to show once if repeated in a message.
|External Service Statuses||If Tourplan NX is configured to use external services there is now an External INI Setting which can be configured to allow multiple statuses (for OK, RQ and XX). This allows you to provide a comma delimited list of accepted values.|
|Order of Allocation Splits||The order of allocation splits now displays in split code order.|
|Product Analysis Report||The layout of the CSV generated Product Analysis Report has been adjusted slightly to enhance readability. There is now a new line between each line of data.|
|Debtors Module Remainder Value of 0.01||Numerical fields in NX have been changed to use standard number rounding functions (such as used to display currency values). These will now round to the required precision before formatting eliminating the un-calculated amount from un-rounded totals.|
|Standing Journal||Each line value will now be rounded to 2dp before completion of summing occurs ensuring the actual debit/credit totals match their displayed values. Where there may be small differences due to currency conversions the journals will only be flagged as unbalanced if the difference is half a cent or greater.|
