Scan Job

The Scan Job function can be found under the Transactions menu. 

The Scan Job function allows an inwards goods receipt to be identified and then offers a twin grid screen where each row represents a quantity of one product.  Decimal quantised products are not supported at this stage but might be added on a separate tab of the form at a later date.

The form is designed as a pick list for the job and supports bar-coded (wedge reader) or keyboard input.

Scan Job Search {tab}

When the function is opened the user is presented with a sales order Search screen (tab).

Warehouse - Scan Job - Job Costing Search {tab}

The combo box accommodates filtering by branch. 

Scan Job Process {tab}

After selecting a job the system proceeds to the Process tab

Warehouse - Scan Job – Process {tab}


Firstly let us define PLU and SKU to explain why we have two stock codes in the grid. Common definition is that:

·         PLU is Price lookup Unit. usually this is the same stock item as the SKU

·         SKU is Stock Keeping Unit

Exo has facility for Linked Stockcodes where a PLU (lookup) item is used to set a bulk price and link to an SKU. For Example Stock Item 6PACK (PLU) might point at item BOTTLES (SKU) and have a ratio of 6:1 (see stock Items Details 2 tab).  In this case we are saying that we are stocking everything as bottles which we could sell individually or as a 6 pack.  If we order a 6 pack we therefore have to despatch 6 BOTTLES not one 6PACK.  The DUO Dispatch function will therefore generate 6 rows for one 6 PACK.

The Description column comes from the purchase order line (not stock master) and may have been overwritten when the order was created in MYOB Exo.

Batch will show any preloaded stock batch codes entered via Exo purchase orders.

Branch and Location are the abbreviated descriptions from the master setup.  They reflect the codes on the purchase order line which mostly will be the same as on the sales order header.

Bin is either the bin code entered on the purchase order line or if this is blank the system will retrieve the bin code from the stock items corresponding location record.

The two Grids

In the Process tab the top grid shows candidates for receipting and the bottom grid shows processed lines. One row is shown for each unit quantity from purchase order lines. The top grid shows items from purchase orders not yet receipted and the bottom grid shows receipted items.

Note: The height of these two grids can be altered by dragging the splitter bar that is between them.

The Scan EditBox is an omni-box.  All entry is done in this box (usually using a barcode scanner) and the system decides what it thinks the data is.

A unit of product is processed (a quantity of one is receipted) by identifying the stock code in the Scan EditBox by any one of these means:

·         Entering a stockcode (either PLU or SKU)

·         Entering a barcode to be found in any of the  barcode fields of a stock item (either PLU or SKU)

·         Entering a stock serial number (matched to in-stock serials of participating stock codes)

·         Entering a stock batch code (matched to participating stock codes)

The searching follows the above precedence list. In all cases the system does an exact match (in the above test sequence) and if the item is not found in the grids then a warning message is displayed and no update action occurs. No wildcard matching occurs.


The line narrative is likely of high importance so is shown in the dedicated note area at bottom left of the screen.

Scan Job Manifest {tab}

The Manifest tab houses the Manifest widget. This widget allows capture of consignment note and courier ticket information. For more information see the Manifest Widget in the Consignments section of this document.

Scan Job Detail {tab}

The Detail tab houses a Job Details widget showing the Job. This is a read only widget to display the inwards goods receipt information. The receipt is Object Locked whilst selected so you cannot view it in MYOB Exo.

Warehouse - Scan Job – Detail {tab}

Scan Job Debtor {tab}

The debtor tab shows the Company and Contact widgets associated with the debtor for this job. The tab presentation is the same as shown for the Companies screen.
