i am not familiar with 5.5 but i can tell you how i would do it using the current version and i think it is uncomplicated enought that it may work with 5.5. i would do it using the "setfield" script step. it would look something like this:
setfield [cartons on hand ; cartons on hand + new cartons received]
setfield [new cartons received; "0"]
let me know if you don't have the setfield option available and there are two other methods i can explain which you can use and one of them involves nothing more than using the copy and paste script steps which i am all but certain are available in 5.5.
keep me posted,
This is exactly what I needed. I know version 5.5 is ancient, but it's what I have and it does what we need.
Thanks so much!!!!!!
