Some buttons are displayed on the main screen for enquiring on customers, parts, suppliers, general ledger accounts and assets. These buttons will only appear if the selected company has that option and the logged-in user has sufficient security to enquire on those accounts.

On the main screen the enquiry functions are selected by clicking on the button or pressing the function key noted in brackets. Eg, F1 for customer enquiry.

Customer Enquiry
Product Enquiry
Supplier Enquiry
GL Account Enquiry


When you are in any screen you can do an account enquiry by pressing the function key - with the control key, eg, CTRL-F1 for Customer Enquiry. After you have finished with your enquiry press Escape/close to get back to the screen you were previously on.


To close any screen or window press the Escape button. Alternatively use the mouse to click on the "X" in the top right-hand corner or click on the "Cancel" or "Close" button as applicable on most screens.

Most buttons include one letter (usually the first) that is underlined. Users can hold down the "Alt" key and press the letter to activate the button. For example press Alt-S to activate the "Save" button.
