Increased Selective Order Header Screens

Datafile 2019 and above

Sales and Purchase Order Processing allow for the user of two order header entry screens when entering sales/purchase orders and one further selective screen that is only displayed when the order matches the required criteria.  This new feature increases the number of selective screens to 5.


Selective screens could be used to enter additional criteria for order types – for example when the order is a quote you could enter additional quote parameters, if the order is a credit you could enter additional credit reasons, and so on.

Once the screen template is complete press the SAVE label on the Design ribbon.


You can define the criteria under which the selective screen is displayed by highlighting the screen before right-clicking with the mouse and choosing Criteria.
