ShoWorks will automatically set your sale order based on criteria you have set up in each division, and the placings you have given entries. You can then "tweak" or adjust this sale order to suit your style of sale. After Sale Order is set, you can then let ShoWorks automatically create Sale Invoices based on the Sale Order. Creating Sale Invoices before the sale allows you to "fill in the blank" during the sale, to each entry (lot) that is to sell.


To set Sale Order manually

  1. Click the button on the right side of the screen that says "Entries"
  2. Click on the tab that says "Results"
  3. Type in the number (lot number) of the order that each animal will sell in.

To set Sale Order automatically

  1. Select "Tools" then "Sale Tools" then "Set Sale Order".
  2. Follow the onscreen instructions.  You can later return to this menu and "adjust" the sale order if needed.
  3. The sale order has now been set. ShoWorks has numbered the Sale Order automatically, just like you would have done manually in the above section of this help article. You may now print out a report and sort the entries based on sale order. You should filter out all entries that do not have a sale order, so that the report only include the entries you are selling. To do this, create a custom report and filter one Sale Order, where Sale Order is between 1 and 999 (or some high number).

To adjust Sale Order

  1. Select "Tools" then "Sale Tools" then "Set Sale Order".
  2. Select "I want to modify a current Sale Order" and follow the onscreen instructions.

To create Sale Invoices based on Sale Order.

  1. Click the button on the right side of the screen that says "Sale"
  2. Verify that there are no invoices already entered, or that the invoices (records) you wish to create are not already created. In other words, you should have no records, otherwise, you will duplicate records that already exist.
  3. Select "Tools" then "Sale Tools", then "Create Sale".
  4. Highlight each division you wish to include in the sale.
  5. Verify that the "Start with Invoice Number" is where you would like to begin numbering Sale Invoices. Most often, this will begin with "1".
  6. Click "Go". This process may take several minutes, depending on the speed of your computer.
  7. Click "Close"
  8. Click the button on the right side of the screen that says "Sale". Verify, that sale invoices have now been created and now all that you have to do is fill in the blanks with how much and who bought each entry.
