TransPost Version 4

There are major changes in the forthcoming release of TransPost. It will enable deletion and in some cases modification of transactions.

The Configuration & Activation program has been removed and replaced by options in the main program itself. This removes the need to run a separate program as Administrator to configure files or update a license.

Note: Classic AccountRight is no longer supported so those users who still use it should not upgrade past version 3.3.7

These are pre-release versions so there may be issues but we have tested all transaction types to ensure that pre-existing functions work as they should.

TransPost Express

TransPostExpress Setup 4.0.0.728 ... 1.16MB 6/03/2022

TransPost

TransPost Setup 4.0.0.733.exe ... 1.23MB 6/03/2022

New Features:

  • Field lengths to match AccountRight

    Invoice and order numbers have been extended to match the new lengths permissible in AccountRight. Other fields such as Customers Number and Job Number have also been extended

  • Deletion and Updates

    A new Action field is available on most types of mapping. As long as the card or transaction is properly and uniquely identified action code D will delete and U will cause all fields for which values are mapped and entered to be updated.

    For sales, if there is data in the item line fields, e.g. item number quantity and or price, or account code, description or amount, that will create an additional line.

New Features not applicable in TransPost Express:

  • Foreign currency in Item and Service sales and Customer Payments
  • Converting orders to invoices
  • Stock Locations in Item Sales

Improvements:

  • The log will record hidden 'debug' details when there are communications errors to assist us in investigating what is going wrong and, if needed, communicate any necessary details to MYOB API support.
  • More to come...

Fixes:

  • Composite Tax Codes

    The AccountRight API does not return details of composite tax codes such as GST on WET tax and similar so, without finding out at least a minimal amount about such a tax code it is impossible to post transactions that use them

    If such a tax code is used as a default for sales generally or a specific customer, item or account code then the first time in a session that TransPost comes across such a default it will remember it for use later in the session. This will work even if TransPost is not actually using the default at the time. For example if a customer is set to have the tax code when sold as say GW but Use Customers Tax code is not set then TransPost will still remember that tax code for the remainder of the session while actually using the input tax code or the appropriate default for the account or item.

Known Problems:

We are still working on fixing these!

There may also be unknown problems. We hope not but email to let us know at support@transpost.com.au if you encounter them.

  • The first time you start the new version there will be an unexpected 3323 error. Exit and start again and you will probably never see it again.
  • Sometimes the communications errors in the log are doubled up. Some messages are appearing that are intended to be invisible 'debug' messages, hidden but there in case we need to do some trouble-shooting when AccountRight is not responding well, or just there until we have got something working properly.
  • The 'Daily between' and 'Never' settings for the service do not work, at least Never works too well as it is permanent until the Service is restarted.

    If someone accidentally or out of curiousity selects either of these options we suggest selecting and saving the 'All the time' option and then go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services, select the TransPost Service and Stop and Start it

  • Converting Orders to Invoices does not work for Time Billing sales but since we cannot imagine anyone wanting to do that it is not a high priority. Let us know if you care.
