SECTION 1.6.1 - OBTAIN BILL-BOOK NUMBER
USAGE: To obtain the next available Bill-Number and attach it to a Client’s file, so that a File-Bill can be generated later.
DISCUSSION: When you start this function, the computer will initially ask for a Client code. Insert a code and press <Enter>. If you do not remember the Client’s code, press <F9> to initiate a search.
Once you have a Client chosen, T.L.A. will display the basic details pertaining to that file and will ask the question:
OBTAIN BILL-NUMBER? (Y+/N-) [_]
Here you must enter Y to proceed. T.L.A. will then display the number assigned and then force you to answer YES to the final question: HAVE YOU WRITTEN THIS NUMBER DOWN?
You should write this number in the Client’s file because this number is required when a File-Bill is generated. The number is specific to that Client.
You will then be returned to the Client code entry routine where you can either obtain another number or press <ESC> to return to the BILL-BOOK MENU.
