Sales Amount (AR) This is the sales amount that you would like to adjust for the sales code. After entering the sales amount, the opposite amount will be displayed as the "Transfer to Sales Amount."
Salesman (AR) This is the number of the salesman you would like to assign to this transaction. The default will be the salesman set up in the customer's master file. You may enter the salesman number, press TAB to accept the default salesman, or use the space bar to remove the default salesman and then press the F2 key to scroll through the salesman file. Once the salesman number has been selected, the salesman name will be displayed below this data item. The salesman number entered here will be used by the system to later calculate the commissions by salesman.

You may enter the salesman number, or press TAB to accept the default salesman, or the Down Arrow (F2 by default) to scroll through the salesman file.

The salesman number entered here will be used by the system to later calculate the commissions by salesman.
Scheduled Payment This check box allows you to indicate to the system that you want to specify a specific payment schedule for this order when the billing is performed. This item will be turned off if you have specified "None" to the option "Scheduled Payment Type" in the Accounts Receivable Master Configuration. If you "on" this item, the system will pause before the invoice is printed for this order, and ask you for the payment scheduling information.
Scroll The up and down movement of text or data on your screen. When more data is available to be viewed than the current screen can display, scrolling moves the lines of data up or down, allowing you to view the entire file. Scrolling detail dialog boxes colors can be modified within the Display tab in the Configuration options.

Serial (AUX) A method of data transfer utilized by external equipment attached to your computer; such as a printer or modem. Please consult the manuals of your external equipment for their specific configuration.
Set Up Bank Account This option allows you to define bank accounts. When configuring your system for EFT processing, the bank account will ask for certain pieces of information, one of which is the EFT Processor. That is why it is important to set up the EFT Processor before setting up the bank account. There are four mandatory fields of information which must be entered before EFT processing may begin. These fields are Account #, Account Type, Routing #, and EFT Processor. For more information on setting up a bank account, please refer to Chapter 2, Add A Bank Account in the Check Reconciliation User Manual.
Set Up EFT Processor This option allows you to set up pertinent information about your EFT processor(s). You may set up more than one EFT Processor if the need be. For instance, you may have a separate processor for Payroll Direct Deposit transactions and yet another for "debit/credit" transactions created in the Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable modules. Specifics on the set up of EFT Processors is found in Chapter 2, Add An EFT Processor in the Check Reconciliation User Manual.

Source Document An original transaction document. Can include such items as checks, invoices, sales orders, and receipts.
Special Order This order works exactly like a Normal sales order except for one condition. This order may be transferred to the Purchase Order Entry module and turned into a purchase order without requiring you to re-key the information on the order all over again. Many firms may take an order from a customer and then have to turn around and place the exact or near exact order with their vendors. If the part numbers and other information are the same, many times, all that is necessary to change is the costing information. This option will save considerable amounts of time for those types of situations.
