Fixed Assets Depriciation Issue
By sukhosla at 12 Jan 2010 - 16:49

We found our fixed assets calculation is not correct. We have entered initial data upto period 2009/12. System is calculating deprication for those assets too where book value is 1 or those are fully depricated before in previous year/period or going to be fully depriciated in next few more months. Our depreciation calculation method is "Fixed % of base value" with First and Last use date.

Can any one help us ,how to control this. We need following:

1. system should not calculate for those assets which are fully depricated and having book value only 1.

2. system should calculate depreciation for those assets which are going to be fully depriciated in next few months with their respective months of depriciaiton % not with full year amount.

3. Remaining other assets should have correct calculation in future years too.  

Awaiting your valueable reply as earliest..




We were baaN Users on Unix and Oracle. We migrate to Windows and SQL server. ^Problem with files format
By davenon at 16 Dec 2009 - 17:11

We create, in a report script files with code like below:

        IF code.login = "davenon" THEN
  idfac =,"w")
  idfac =,"w")
 IF idfac < 1 THEN
  |*Ouverture rapport impossible

and write with :

  mntbrut  = sprintf$("%@9999999,99@",( -1 * transport.forfait))
  enrcpt = "VTE" & CSV
   & dat6factur & CSV & nopiece & CSV
   & tdsls045.ttyp & SLASH & nofactur & CSV
   & "708" & nucompte708.SAGE & CSV
   & "" & CSV
         & facturavoir & nofactur & " " & raisocpt & CSV
   & "" & CSV
   & "" & CSV
   & mntbrut & CSV
   & mntbrut & CSV
   & "0,00"
         retour = seq.puts(enrcpt,idcpt)

Now , we are using in Windows and SQL server environnement. The files created with this code are in format Unix and we need to convert  them in Windows Format.

How can we obtain files in windows format ?

Thanks to all. I'm sure to obtain a good respons by you

Problem with reserved stock parent part vs. child (sub item)
By JJansen75 at 9 Sep 2009 - 08:53

Dear all,

 I have a problem with the reservation of parent item vs. child (sub item).

Out of an article we make other items our selves. Our database is Dutch, but I made some screen shots and attached them.

Problem is that if we sell a sub article (child) it shows the reserved quantity.

In my oppinion it should reserve stock on the above laying part (parent) as well.

Only in that case I know how many pieces of parent parts I have to buy.

Is it possible to change something in Baan to let it reserve automatically on parent item?

Creating a PDF INVOICE to disk with Invoice number in the file name for archiving purposes.
By genehunter at 14 Jul 2009 - 16:32

I have been working on a way to archive invoices and to automatically label the file name with the invoice number. This is the code I have so far. It uses Ghost script pdf converter and it seems to work. If you have questions send me an email at


This is the print driver. the code near the middle (findstr) is what finds the string with the INVOICE number and labels the pdf file. 


gswin32c -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sPAPERSIZE=a4 -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=e:\baan\tmp\archive_pdf.pdf e:\baan\tmp\archive_pdf.txt

copy e:\baan\tmp\archive_pdf.pdf e:\archive_invoice\archive_pdf.pdf
copy e:\baan\tmp\archive_pdf.txt e:\archive_invoice\archive_pdf.txt
rem -- ren e:\archive_invoice\archive_pdf.pdf invoice%date:~4,2%%date:~7,2%%date:~10,4%%time:~1,1%h%time:~3,2%m%time:~6,2%s%.pdf
findstr /C:"45 444" archive_pdf.txt >e:\archive_invoice\results.txt
set /P test=<e:\archive_invoice\results.txt
ren e:\archive_invoice\archive_pdf.pdf invoice-%test:~49,3%-%test:~72,8%.pdf
