You will have several options available via the function keys:
<F1> or <CsrLeft> This will cause HiFinance attempt to read the previous record. If there is one, it will be displayed.
<F2> or <CsrRight> This will cause HiFinance attempt to read the next record. If there is one, it will be displayed.
<F3> will print the information currently on the screen. Before printing the computer will ask, START REPORT? To start the report, answer Y. If you do not wish to print, answer N. More information is printed on this report than appears on the screen.
<F4> This overlays a window that displays the note attached to this Creditor. If there is no note, the function key is not active.
<F5> will allow you to display transactions for this account. The screen will highlight the current balance. See SECTION 1.2 for a full description of this function. If there are Purchases or Returns on file for this Creditor, there are also likely to be Inventory transactions available. If this is the case, when you have chosen a period to display, you will then be given the choice of displaying Creditor transactions or Inventory transactions. This is determined by you pressing <F4> or <F6>, respectively. If you choose <F6>, only Inventory transactions pertaining to the current Creditor will be displayed. This is a quick way of finding out what a supplier has supplied in the past and is often more efficient than using the INVENTORY TRANSACTION REPORTS function (see SECTION 3.4.9).
<F8> will allow you to display purchase orders for this account. The functionality of this option is similar to displaying transactions <F5>.
<ESC> will return to Creditor code entry routine. From there, another <ESC> will exit the program and return you to the CREDITOR enquiry MENU.
