RECONSTRUCT TIPS – At times it may be necessary to reconstruct a group of
history files within Retail Pro. In the past this has required that you
reconstruct the files one by one. This was very time consuming and required
that a person be there to specify which file to reconstruct.
With the release of 7.51 a feature has been added to the reconstruct tool
that will allow a user/dealer to create a text file, RECONST.TXT, containing
a list of history files to reconstruct. This file will be used by
reconstruct and then renamed to RECONST.SAV so that it is not used
inadvertently the next time reconstruct is run. Below you will see an
example of how to enter the list of files in the text file.
At this time this feature can only be used to reconstruct history documents,
Sales, Vouchers, Slips, and Memos. In addition, this feature is still
dependent on the tolerances and intolerances of reconstruct.
