Fields available on the TRUCK TYPES file.


Name                  Comments


TRUCK TYPE This is a unique identifier for the type of Truck. It can be up to 15 characters long and follows the same restrictions as Debtor Codes (see SECTION 1).


DESCRIPTION This field consists of two lines of up to 50 characters. You must enter at least something into the first line. These fields are used to describe the truck more fully than the TRUCK TYPE.


REGISTRATION      This is an optional field that can contain the Trucks registration number. This of course will only work if there is only one Truck per Code.


NUMBER OF COMPARTMENTS     Here you enter the number of compartments the truck has. Eg for a B DOUBLE, the entry is 7. The entry here must be a number between 1 and 20, inclusive.


COMPARTMENT SIZE/DETAILS            The number of lines appearing here depends on the NUMBER OF COMPARTMENTS. These fields are currently optional. However, they normally contain the size in litres of each compartment and a space for any documentary information. These fields are to be used for Scheduling, which is currently not implemented.
