SECTION 2.1.2 - MODIFY A CREDITOR
USAGE: Modify the details of an existing Creditor. This option is only used for changing the static information such as the Name. Normally, it is also possible to change the Creditor’s code here, also.
DISCUSSION: When you start the MODIFY program, the computer will initially ask for a code. Insert the code and press <Enter>.
To return to the CREDITOR MAINTENANCE MENU, press <ESC>.
To search for an account, press <F9>. For further details on searches, see SECTION 1.2.
Having entered a valid code, the computer will display the current information pertaining to that account. You can modify any of the fields that are surrounded by brackets. Also, you have the following options available via the function keys:
<F1> This will cause HiFinance attempt to read the previous Creditor record. If there is one, it will be displayed. HiFinance will move to the previous record without saving any changes you might have made.
<F2> This will cause HiFinance attempt to read the next Creditor record. If there is one, it will be displayed. HiFinance will move to the next record without saving any changes you might have made.
<F4> This allows you to enter or modify a note detailing any non-structured information. The information you enter here will be displayed during PURCHASING.
<F9> This initiates a search through the Creditor Group master-file. The Creditor Group chosen will be automatically inserted into the Creditor Group field.
<F10> will complete your entry, after checking for any inconsistencies and confirming your request. Your changes will be saved to disk, over-writing any previously stored information.
