Input screens consist of data fields that accept input or display previously entered data. Each field is labeled to indicate the data required for that field. The following is an example of an input screen.
Accounting Entry Screen
Parts Entry Screen
Service Entry Screen
It is important to note that some fields only accept specific information. For example, you cannot enter alpha characters in a strictly numeric field, such as a date field or dollar amount field. It is a common error when entering dollar values to forget to include the decimal point. Unless you specify in the Accounting parameters for the system to automatically add decimal points, the system will treat entries as whole dollar amounts. For example, if you type 5, the system makes the entry 5.00. If you type 500, the system makes the entry 500.00. If you type 5.00, the system leaves the value as it was entered. Always double-check the dollar values entered to ensure the amount will be posted the way it needs to be posted.
