I'm wondering if I can only import the items and quantities, and then MYOB applies the default pricing matrix which is already in system.Eg, import csv file as follows-
1. Import Date Customer Name/cardid, Item Number and Quantity.
2. MYOB generates invoice using imported data and pricing rules in MYOB
I was able to successfully do step1, however the sales order generated all had $0 for price. I thought we could have some sort of an option or setting on items wherein MYOB could override or apply pricing if not present in the import data.
We have 2000 + sales orders generated every month and complex pricing rules depending on the customer and the quantity. It was great to set up the pricing rules in MYOB but I can't indivudally generate the invoice for every customer each month as the item quantity will vary each month. MYOB being such a mature accounting software, I thought this would be already present.
Can this be made available? IF not is there a workaround to this?
"Importing Item Sales without Price and applying Price from MYOB"
Thank you for the update, David. I understand you would like to be able to import sales / orders with basic customer information and the Item and quantity details and have an option to tell the system to use the Price from the Selling Details tab of the Item. Our developers would love to see how many others would like this ability to be included in the software. So please vote and add your comments.
Do you mean that you would like to set rules for a default pricing matrix, and then be able to have the software calculate all pricing levels for all items based on the base selling price and these rules?
Yes, that is exactly what I mean. I already have the pricing matrix and rules in MYOB, what I would like the software to do is calculate/generate the invoice based on these pricing rules and on the imported item quantity which will vary every month. Maybe my approach to do this is wrong and there is a better efficient way to do this via MYOB.
My aim is to have MYOB generate invoices every month for all the customers. The items and pricing matrix are already set in MYOB. If it was 1, 2 or 5 customers, I would have selected the customer, generated an invoice manually for them by selecting the items and their quantities. But I have 2000+ customers, how would I go about generating invoices for all of these each month?
Thank you for the clarification, David (@dgcrispi).
I understand you would like to be able to import sales / orders with basic customer information and the Item and quantity details and have an option to tell the system to use the Price from the Selling Details tab of the Item.
I can definitely see the benefit in this, especially considering the volume of sales that you're dealing with.
Something for the developers to consider in a future update.
Something that you may consider in the meantime is to set up Recurring Invoices in the system to 'sort of' automate the process. You will still have to update the Quantity and Items in each of the sale before recording it. On the positive this will ensure that the price is picked up from the Item card. However the negative would be that you still have to manually change each Invoice. May be a slight improvement to having to manually enter in each invoice.
Thank you Suja, Looking forward in having this in MYOB soon.
Which version of AccountRight are you using? The new version of TransPost, TransPost Express which imports into AccountRIght Live/2014 does pick up the item price if it is not supplied. It is currently available as a trial version see http://www.transpost.com.au
Otherwise this feature is also going to be included in the next releases of TransPost and TransPost Plus which work with the classic (V19 etc) versions of AccountRight. These will be available by the end of the year.

I am with a school and have set up all our families to get term invoices by item. The fees go up year by year, but the recurring transactions of now repriced items prices them at last years prices.
This in effect means its barely any use to set up recurring transactions for four uses then set them up again for the next four. Why doesnt it use the current item price?
Thank you for your feedback in regards to this idea.

It does use the current item price as it reads the import file. As the import file contains zero it is going to import zero as the price. This is because importing is directly entering the transactions into the database, so you are stating that x is the price for the price of this. Whereas if you follow the enter sale option in the program its will use the pricing from the Customer. If you are importing you are setting this price and directly entering it into the database so it doesn't get a chance/need to look at the item price as you have stated this is the price.
