MAPADOC TIPS & TRICKS

Here are few tips and tricks for MAPADOC:

MAPADOC Backup
When backing up your MAS system, name the backup alpha-numerically after your live company code to avoid having your incoming documents go into the backup company by mistake. MAPADOC searches through the available company codes listed in alpha numerical order, if you name the company something before the live company, all data will go to the other/backup company.

For example: Your live company code is MAP and you want to copy all company files to a backup for the end of 2005. If you use company code ABC, all EDI files will go to ABC company code. Name it anywhere between MAQ – ZZZ and this problem will not arise. If you do need to name the company code something before your live company, you must go into MAPADOC/Setup/Customer Trading Partner Maintenance and remove all inbound interface IDs for each of your trading partners.

MAPADOC cross reference tables, customer setups and UPC code maintenance tables all use Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 data

If you are going to remove a customer from AR, an item from inventory, or a Misc Charge Code from Sales Order, you MUST remove them from Mapadoc first.

For example; you have a UPC table setup for all of your item numbers listed in inventory. One or several of your item codes need to be changed because of new packaging. If you remove them from MAS without removing them from the UPC table first you will be unable to assign the same UPC number to this new item code. The old item number will still have that UPC code in your table. You would first remove the item from the UPC table in Mapadoc, then remove the item from inventory. This way you will be able to assign the same UPC code to the new item code.
