Go to Maintenance -> Supplier Maintenance

There are different ways of bringing up a supplier to be enquired upon. The supplier number and the supplier name are the easiest to use. Suppliers can be searched for, based on:
Supplier number, Supplier name, Keyword search, Address search, Phone number search or Supplier type.

The search function has been designed in such a way that when a user enters a part of a number or text in the relevant above mentioned fields, suppliers that contain those numbers or text will be displayed. The user can then select the supplier if it is displayed or try another search option.

If this is the first time you have entered suppliers you will need to ensure some tables have been set-up in FastBase before starting.

Types - these are necessary to define suppliers for reporting and processing. The type is typically used to define the first level of classification. See Utilities - Types. Typical types for suppliers may include LOCAL, OVERSEAS or STOCK & NON-STOCK.

Additional tables can be created at a later stage. If unsure leave them out for now. These include Category codes (a more detailed level).
