Downloading and Installing Pricing Files

Pricing files in Stocktrac allow you to update prices/costs for items in your inventory, add categories/manufacturers, and add part numbers. Pricing files are typically sent from one of your distributors to our pricing department. The pricing department will turn those files into ones that can be processed through your system. You will get an email when a pricing file is ready to be installed.

Go into the Pricing module.

Go to the Updates tab, and then click Refresh List on the left side of the screen.

Pricing files will begin to populate. Select the checkbox next to the ones you want to download and install.

Once you have selected the desired files, click Get Updates on the right of the screen.

The pricing files will then download to the location you specify, which is normally the Common folder in the STWIN3 folder.

Once the files have finished downloading, select the Install tab. Click the checkbox next to the files you want to install, and then click the Install button on the right of the screen.

Note: there are some additional options related to the install of the pricing files below the install button. Typically these should be left alone unless otherwise stated.

Often times when you are installing new pricing files, they contain Categories and Parts that you do not have in your system. You will be prompted to provide additional information, such as giving new Prefixes to a new Category.

Once the files have been installed, a date will appear next to the pricing files you selected to install.

Once you have installed all the pricing files desired, it is a good idea to delete them to free up space on your system. To do this, go to the Delete tab, click the checkbox next to the files you want to delete, and then click Delete on the right.
