### Re: Small mod on InventoryPlanning.php

```Hi Phil:

You are right, current period (at the beginning of the current month) it is unlikely to the the maximum.

But we could assume not just sales on the current period but:

Estimated sales on current period = current sales to date * 30 / day of the month (today) (sorry, my last post

So we will have a rough estimation of the sales for the current period. (There are million ways to do a better
estimate, just for the sake of simplicity).

Imagine we sell macadamia nuts ice-cream cones:

Month -4: 70
Month -3: 70
Month -2: 90
Month -1: 95
Current Month: 15

If we are at 3th day of current month (and it happens to be the beggining of summer) we can assume we will sell 15
* 30 / 3 = 150 cones on this month so on day 3th we can do a better inventory planning, and a better suggestion.

If we are at 27th of current month (supposing the beggining of winter, as example) we will continue with the
suggested order of 95 cones, as 15 * 30 /27 = 17

With the current script we will suggest only 95 cones, whatever the situation is...

So, I still think will be a better script than the current one

### Re: Small mod on InventoryPlanning.php

```I am sure we could do forecasting a hundred ways - weighted averages,
regression etc etc... ultimately my view is that you need to look at
these things with some knowledge of what is going on in the
business.Using the maximum of the last 4 months is quite conservative
really.

eg. the weather forecast for the next 3 weeks is great so we can expect
this month to be a solid one for icecream sales ...

I think it is useful to have the current month's sales shown but drawing
conclusions based on just a few days is probably dangerous.
It could be that the item was only released to the market in the last
few days so the previous months all show 0 and the last few days is all
there is to go on, there is no substitute for some judgment.
This report is not intended to be the correct answer and any forecasting
report will always be wrong, but it does provide some information so

### Re: Release 3.10.4

```Hi Tim:

expected:

Index.php in CVS was 1.80, but inside 3.10.4 zip was 1.76 (so, Phil's script
as inventory planning from preferred supplier is unreachable),
Purchdata.php in CVS was 1.21 but inside 3-10-4 zip was 1.19
InventoryPlanning is an older version as well.

Only checked these 3 files, but I suspect there's more...

Was it done with any purpose (functions not stable yet, etc.) or something
I'm missing?

Thanks,

Ricard

### invoice description line can't display a full line words

Hi,there,
How can I make invoice description line to display as many letters as
possible.
Because sometimes I put a lot of letters in the item short descriptions and detailed descriptions.But on the invoice on the description column it just displays 3,4 or 5 letters. For
example,I put the short description line and detailed description under the item pangram:The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
But on my invoice description line just display as follows:
The quick brown
I think we should use a text wrap method in php to prevent this
kind of situation happen.

Is any have similar problem to me?Or just my own usage problem?

At the same time I would like to have two lines to display product
description,but now the invoice just allows displaying one one.
If you could help me to modify it,that would be perfect!

Thanks!

Joe

### Re: Release 3.10.4

```Hi Ricard,

Yes the intention is with these 3.10.x releases is just to correct any
bugs in the 3.10 functionality, not to introduce any new features.
This way the releases should be very stable. For those wanting the
newest features I occasionally release cvs snapshot versions that have
all the bug fixes, with the latest features as well. However the new
functionality may introduce new bugs not found as yet, so the cvs
releases will not be as stable.

### Re: invoice description line can't display a full line words

```Hi Joe,

I have trouble replicating this problem. I have tried landscape and
portrait invoices and get the full short description printed on the
Invoice. Is there anything unusual in what your doing (different
localisation for instance). Does the full description appear on the
screen when you go to invoice?

Thanks

### invoice description line can't display a full line words

Tim,
Thanks for your reply.The situation is like this.I think the description  on the invoice is display the contents of the short description of the item code.When you enter the letters in the field of the short description,you got to be very careful,you have to count letters.There is some limit of letters.If you enter more letters than this limit,even one more letter,then the description of invoice only display 3 or  4 letters which is not what you want.
For example,If I put the short description line under the item pangram:The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
On my invoice description column it display the full contents of what I just entered,that is "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
But if I entered "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.the",immediately the invoice just only display the contents:"The quick brown" not the same as "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.the",even you just enter "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.t",the invoice just displays "The quick brown".
Please note don't replicate the above example,I didn't justify it,it is just for my illustration purpose.

Thanks
Joe
