Transaction / Detail Enquiries

Datafile Software

Transaction / Detail Enquiries

This option gives you the ability to configure the display of the job costing transaction enquiries available for each job record. On selection of this option you are able to set the authority levels for access to each transaction enquiry.

Blanking the authority level disables that particular transaction enquiry option otherwise set as appropriate (remember values are from 0-9 where 0 is the highest and 9 is the lowest authority level). After setting the appropriate levels you can then configure the display items for these options.

Transactions / Details

LIFO

Set to display stock transactions in LIFO – last in first out – order. If set then you should ensure that the job costing transaction data item JOB-CODE is a secondary index.

DATE

Transactions are usually displayed based on the order they were entered, setting this option sorts the details into date order – either FIFO or LIFO based on setting of the prompt above.

If Premier, after confirming the list items you are given the option to design a full-screen enquiry display for the job costing transaction.
