Stop printing on paper Sales Journal

    We still print the sales journal every time we invoice.  In an effort to save on paper, is there a way to turn off the physical printing of the sales journal in SL?

    Thanks.

    Hi Susan,

    We just do a print preview and don't actually print it....if you did want to save it, you could export to PDF.  We also only run once a day after all the billing....

    Hope this helps...

    Thanks,
    Michael

    You could also modify the report in Crystal by suppressing all sections and then modifying the report options to not print when there are no records.  This would allow you to press print and then get either 1 blank page or no pages at all.

    Like Michael, we run the sales journal after all billing is compeled.  We use Application Server to run the journal after hours and print to pdf.  The same file is overwritten daily.

    We run multiple companies world-wide in a single database and over 8M in inventory.  We run on 'skinny' stock levels and need to keep inventory as current as possible.

    We print our sales journal many times a day and on request to process credits (in order to rebill, or return PO Receipts).  We always print  preview to save paper because we find little value in the report.  After printing we also process all A/R and Inventory batches.  This keeps our inventory as accurate as possible. 

     

    Regards,
