Before you print your quote, you need to fill out the customer information. Click the “Address” icon and fill in the fields.

You can also add extra lines under each sign type, or a general line to the quote for e.g. installation, by clicking the icon for “Extra Calculation Item”.

An extra line can be deleted again, by highlighting it and clicking the icon for “Delete Calculation Item”.

Customizing Reports Logo

Replace the file c:\program files\vcon\user\logo.bmp (which is the Modulex logo) with your own logo. The logo will print on all forms from V.Con. You can also create a “full” logo or watermark that will be printed before the actual sign and other information is printed from V.Con. Create a bmp file in A4 and save it as c:\program files\vcon\user\watermark.bmp. The watermark will only print on the “quote” and “calculation” forms. If both the logo.bmp and the watermark.bmp exist in the folder, both files will be printed.

Footer

Key in your own address in the file c:\program files\vcon\user\local.txt

The address can be split in 3 blocks, and will automatically scale to fit the height of 3 text lines. If you only have 2 text lines in one of the blocks, you should add a blank line to have the same text height in all blocks. Use “\n” to create a new line within a block.

Creating an XML file from V.Con Introduction

If you have activated XML in the interface section in config.txt, you can generate an xml file of the parts list of a quote in V.Con. You must draw the signs as normal, and finally click FILE –EXPORT BOM

NOTE: Only the signs with a quantity specified, will be part of the BOM.

File location

Export BOM will give you an xml version of your parts list. We recommend you name the file with quote No.txt and place it in the folder ..\VCon\Settings\Bom

File structure

The structure of the xml file is specified in the modulex.dtd, which you also find in the folder ..\VCon\Settings\Bom

NOTE: You must make sure that the file “modulex.dtd” is located in the folder where you save your XML files, to be able to view the files in your browser, e.g. Internet Explorer.

Pricelists Introduction

V.Con can work with one or more pricelists that easily can be imported by the user. The prices must be per article Number, so it is not possible to have e.g. more prices for one XY article Number.

File format

The pricelist must be created as a TAB separated file in e.g. MS Excel, with the following structure: Line Number Article Number Price

NOTE: You must not use decimals in the price, as V.Con automatically sets the decimal after the last 2 digits. Each pricelist must be specified by a unique 2-digit Number in the file name. The file name must be created of the following parts: “2699” + Pricelist Number + “05.txt and be placed in the folder ..\VCon\Settings\Prices, like

Switching Pricelist

Open the menu point EDIT – PRICE LISTS to switch between the available pricelists

V.Con Orders Introduction

When you are using V.Con as a stand-alone programme, you must send your orders to your representative in Customer Service via e-mail. Please send only one V.Con file in one e-mail, as the V.Con file is a “customer order”. The invoices from Billund will hold all orders included in one shipment.

Required Information

The mail must include the following information: •

PO Number – state this in the subject



Company name



Requisitioned by



Ship to address – if different from normal



Carrier – if different from normal



Order date



Request date – if different from the lead time specified in the Modulex Product Handbook

If the order contains articles not included in the V.Con file, you can write them in the e-mail with: •

Quantity – Article No – Product series – Description

NOTE: V.Con doesn’t support Braille, so if you have an order for ADA panels, you must also attach the file(s) for the Braille.
