Business! version 5.2 Released

Database Creations announces the new release of Business! Standard and Business! Professional. This is a FREE update to current registered users and includes many updates, as well as a few new enhancements:

  • Multi Credit Card Support - store an unlimited number of credit cards in the customer file for easy recall.  Support for credit card payment selection on the Invoice form is coming soon...

  • ShipRush Interface options - Support for the new ShipRush optional module is included in the 5.2 release.  When the interface is purchased and installed, the user will see additional fields on the Customer and Company Setup forms to allow the setup and use of the ShipRush software.

  • New Install for Access 2003 - Although a new install has been added to the CD, the Access 2003 version of Business! still uses the same file format as Access 2000 and Access 2002, so you should not have any problems using these versions with Access 2003.

Coming Soon in 2004...

Our development team is hard at work on some exciting new features for release in 2004:

  • RMA Tracking System - Create and Mange Return Authorizations separately, or from the Invoice form

  • Departmentalized Accounting - post G/L transactions to separate departments or categories as well as accounts

  • Email Invoices - Instead of printing and mailing invoices to your customers, simply enter the email address and send an invoice through email

  • Yahoo Store Interface - download your orders directly to Business!

  • Lot Tracking - Manage Lots of merchandise and maintain expiration dates for items included in the lots

  • Quickbooks Export - export and share data with Quickbooks

Plus, we're extremely excited about replacing the DBI Calendar Controls with a new and improved interface.  The new Company Schedule will include controls by Infragistics.  This is in development now, so here's your chance to let us know what you would like to see included!  Send an email to controls@databasecreations.com with suggestions and ideas to improve the company schedule and calendar controls.

UPS and FedEx Shipping for Business! Accounting Software

Database Creations is excited to announce they are completing development of a UPS and FedEx shipping interface for Business! Professional Edition and Business! Standard Edition.

The Business! Shipping interface works with a third party product called ShipRush, a powerful yet user friendly shipping tool that processes domestic shipments with UPS and FedEx on-line shipping systems.

With the ShipRush and Business! Shipping interface, you can easily ship packages from the Business! Sales Order and Invoice. Features include:

  • Ship domestic packages via FedEx from the Sales Order and Invoice forms

  • Configuration form lets you enter shipping box selections and dimensions, account numbers, ship notification, third party and recipient account numbers

  • Run end of day, view recent shipments

  • Add optional shipping up-charge amount

  • Customer, invoice and ship-to method is passed to the ShipRush waybill avoiding re-keying of duplicate information

  • Choose shipping method, view your cost, and choose email notification of shipment

  • Shipment is sent directly to FedEx via a static or modem-based Internet connection

  • Tracking number is stored with Invoice/Sales Order

  • Optionally update Shipping charge on Invoice/Sales Order with actual charge

The ShipRush for FedEx product is currently available, however, the UPS shipping module will be available very soon.  As we get closer to release, we will be sending you additional information on pricing and availability. In the meantime, visit our website at www.databasecreations.com/prod_shiprush.htm to learn more about the ShipRush software and the Business! shipping interface.

Office 2003 Compatibility

Microsoft Office 2003 was released in August of 2003 and the development team at Database Creations has been working closely with the Microsoft Access development team to ensure that all Database Creations developed products will run smoothly in Access 2003.

Since Access 2003 uses the Access 2000 database format, Access 2000 and 2002 users can easily use their current databases in Access 2003. If you are an Access 97 user moving to Access 2003, you will need to convert your database to Access 2000 format. This is accomplished by opening the 97 database in Access 2003 and selecting to convert the database to 2000 format when prompted.

Preliminary testing has shown no problems using the current software in Access 2003.  Database Creations will continue to test the following products to ensure compatibility with Access 2003.

  • Business! Professional Edition v5.2

  • Business! Standard Edition v5.2

  • POSitively Business v3.02

  • Inventory Manager 4.x

  • Check Writer for Access

  • EZ Access Developer Tools

  • appBuilder

  • Report Manager Professional

  • Search Manager Professional

  • Report Manager Enterprise Edition

  • Search Manager Enterprise Edition

  • Access Project Security Manager

If you have questions on Access 2003 compatibility, please visit our discussion forums located at www.databasecreations.com/supt.htm for information.
