By Taylor Wise | Oct 2nd, 10 | Categories: Tips & Tricks, Pending Update

A new feature was added at MAS 90/200 version 4.40 so that in all data entry windows, you can now enter alias items and the item code associated with it will be substituted for the alias item entered.

  1. Go to Inventory Management > Main > Item Maintenance and select an item that you want to create an alias item number for.
  2. Click on the more button in the upper right hand corner and choose Alias Item.
  3. Enter the Alias Item number that you wish to use and set the type to “General”.
  4. Click the Accept button.
  5. To test this feature, go to Sales Order > Main > Sales Order Entry and access an existing order or start a new order and select the Lines tab.
  6. At the item number field, enter the alias item number you created and press the tab or enter key.
