When the Cross Reference Table option is selected using the More Menu in the Catalog Manager program, the system activates the Item Cross Reference Lookup program and it loads the program with the Cross Reference records that have been created for the selected item.
The Item Cross Reference Lookup program is used to view and edit the Cross Reference records for a specific Catalog Item Number. The Item Cross Reference Lookup program allows you to
• View the Cross Reference records that have been created in the system for a specific Catalog item.
• Edit existing Cross Reference records for a specific Catalog item.
• Create new Customer Cross Reference records for a Catalog item
Cross Reference records allow you to associate one or more of your internal item numbers with the item numbers that are used by the companies that you do business with. Cross Reference records allow you to lookup and to select an item based on the item number that is being used by a specific customer, buying group (group of customers), vendor, or manufacturer. Cross Reference records can also be used to associate an internal alternate item number to a specific item in the Catalog file. Item Cross Reference information is described in more detail in the Overview section of this document.
You may access more information about the Item Cross Reference Lookup by accessing the program and using the Help Key to display the primary help documentation for the program.
