Power Failures


Whether you realise it or not, our electrical suppliers don’t deliver smooth, consistent current to us all the time. We all ‘enjoy’ electrical spikes, blackouts, brownouts, surges, at all times of the day and night but what is consistent with the power authorities, is the delivery of our power bills.


You may (and I hope you do) have a UPS Uninterruptible Power Supply) on your main server, but, do you have a UPS on your other important computers? If you are using Viságe do you have that server protected? Do you have your network cabling protected?

Remember the earthquake? – the only electrical piece of equipment that continued to work through and after that event in December 1989 at a user’s premises was the main server connected through a UPS. Everything else was blacked out.

Power spikes etc can be conducted through the network cabling and therefore, take out your network card or motherboard. So even if you do have a UPS through the normal mains connecting your server, you can be vulnerable elsewhere. Scary isn’t it! Two users in the one week recently suffered just that – power spikes that not only took out their WordLynx server but also damaged printers. Costly events – not only to get things re-loaded and re-configured but also the angst created because ‘it always happens at the wrong time’. To make matters worse, there were no backups


Hardware Maintenance

Your computer is an organised mess of wires, transistors and whirring hard drives and mechanical things need looking after. If dust, grit, grime etc builds up in the fan at the back of the computer (when did you last look there?) it can cause the fan to stop or slow down, thereby causing the computer to over-heat and whammo, get on the phone to Stamina – I’ve got a software problem – NOT. Call your hardware techo first.

Having your hardware serviced regularly is a serious maintenance strategy. Just having a technician regularly pull the machine down to ‘vacuum’ it can help prevent a fan failure or help to keep you’re ‘A’ drive in working order.

Be mindful that no matter how often or well your service the hardware, the hard disk drive can just stop without warning (that’s why you always have a good backup) after all, how long could you keep whirring around at a zillion miles per hour.


Print report to a File

Have you ever wanted to export a report to a Windows based application eg. Excel?

Go to www.stamina.com.au/downloads.htm and download the Export report to a Windows File - StaminatoWindowsWin7.pdf file for instructions on setting up a Print to File Printer or Use Accuterm Capture Options.


Software Maintenance

Just like hardware, your system’s software (on all your computers) needs a regular ‘grease & oil change’. On your computers with Microsoft operating systems, it’s worthwhile to think about a system defrag and system error check regularly.

Resizing your Stamina system improves your speed and backup time and should be considered at least, every six months (this depends on the size of your database). The process is called RESIZYS is found in System Maintenance and of course, is best carried out at a weekend and only after you have taken a valid backup. There are a number of options (all found by pressing F1 Help key) when doing the process and if you haven’t resized for a while (or at all) then you should call us for advice on the better option to choose, at least for the initial resize. It will make an improvement to your system’s speed and reduce the backup time considerably.

It’s wise to run SPOOLDEL on the Stamina system regularly (how long ago did you do it?) this helps to maintain disk capacity and improve backup time as well. In fact, you could set the SPOOLDEL function as a KEYSTROK along with your BACKUP so that when you run your backups each night, the system could clear the spooler and run the backup for you – all in one fell swoop.


Backing Up

Before you say “yeah, yeah” and ignore the rest of this paragraph, it just never ceases to amaze us that people still don’t back up OR don’t back up properly. That being said, have you considered backing up your peripheral software, that is, Windows set-up, Accuterm set-up, WordLynx templates, FaxLynx templates or any other important information. It all costs time and money when the inevitable happens – and it will!

We had a good example of ‘blissful ignorance’ recently when a user had not had a back up for over twelve months. Because of some hardware changes, certain ‘connections’ were not set up properly and although the backup verified, no information was being recorded on the backup media. It was by pure chance that we discovered the problem – called in to do something completely separate but we did some system checking as part of our overall process and actually averted a potential disaster.

It may well be worth considering having a system check-up to make sure that all that should be happening is actually happening. The cost of Stamina on site for a few hours may be cheap when you consider the alternative as described above.

When is the last time you checked your Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) to make sure it’s working properly? Have you got a UPS? Consider driving a car without a seat-belt or insurance – she’s apples while the road ahead is clear – hit something, fall out of your seat and the seat belt idea suddenly becomes a pretty good idea – that’s the UPS. There are many types of power fluctuations (black-outs, brown-outs, spikes etc) the UPS will generally protect your connected machine from these and, life goes on, ahhhh!


Bank Reconciliation


Using BANKSTAT, the process of reconciling your system with the Bank is very simple. Many users download their bank statements using their own Bank propriety software, eg Quickline (Commonwealth) or ANZLine, NAB etc each morning or at least, very regularly. This is the time then, to update your system using BANKSTAT because when entering the details, you get a running balance (of the Bank Statement) and if there are any problems, mistakes, etc, they can be rectified much easier than doing less frequent reconciliations – while everything is fresh in your mind and once completed, you can get on with life (and other things). Don’t forget, the Bank makes mistakes as well and this is the ideal time to pick them up.

The longer you leave the reconciliation process – the harder it becomes. All Bank Charges should be entered through BANKSTAT as well as the deposits and cheques.

You can use BANKCHGS for more than just entering bank charges. You can set them up to address any General Ledger account (including the GST control accounts) and either Debit OR Credit amounts. For example, if you pay periodical leasing charges via direct debit, loan repayments or even receive interest or rent by direct credits, set up BANKCHGS to address the relevant accounts. You’ll notice that there is a Tax Code in the set up (at Field 7) and if you enter your GST Inclusive or Free tax code here, then the appropriate GST amount is calculated each time you enter your bank statement amount. Therefore, your GST control account is updated, as is your expense or income account simultaneously. If you have more than one entity, you can direct the amounts to the appropriate entity as well (Field 4).

Keeping this up to date keeps everyone happy, the boss – because she can be assured of accurate and up-to-date figures, the accountant – because she can verify the amounts immediately and the data input operator – because he won’t get into too much trouble for taking so long to do the bank reconciliations. See, they’re all happy vegemites


Overseas Transactions

Next time you have to create an overseas draft or are preparing one, we’ve found that it’s best to wait until you have all the Bank details at hand before you enter them based on what the Bank may have told you. By being very expeditious (and we all try to be) and doing all the appropriate entries and so forth, the Bank just may come up with another charge, different rates, etc, etc, and it’s very difficult to change the data once you’ve posted it in the system. I know your going to say, well, it doesn’t happen very often or it doesn’t happen to me – but we all have met Mr Murphy once or twice, haven’t we, hmmm! Moral of the story, procrastination can sometimes (only sometimes I say) lead to a good result.


Smart System Defaults

Do you ever find that you go back to certain fields within the Stamina system and then have to enter the same value/reference that you had just entered before you moved to another section. For example, have you been in say CUSTMNT looking up details for Freddy Kastickapopolous (and you customer code is as long as the name) OR you are continually looking up a product code that’s as long as your leg – a reprieve lay ahead for you in SMARTDEF. This feature allows the system to remember the last item ‘looked up’ in nominated fields and save you re-entering the codes or values etc in those fields. This of course, helps you Save Time And Money In Normal Activities – gee whiz, that’s an acronym for ???????

How to do it?
Type SMARTDEF, then C for create, then type CUSTOMERS then hit the Enter key, then type SUPPLIER (enter key) then type PRODUCTS (entry key) then type GLCHART (enter key) then press the F3 key, then Enter then E. You have now set up features so that after the next time you type in a Customer Code, a Supplier Code, a Product code or a General Ledger account code, the Stamina system will remember it and the next time you use a field requiring any of these codes, the last entered one will appear. You can of course, enter another code over it but at least, you won’t have to re-enter the last one, especially if it was a looonng code or you have use your find key because you forgot it in the meantime.

Another handy time saving trick is USERFKEY – using the Esc and a number key to take you directly to a function. Here’s an example on setting up a USERFKEY to go to your diary. (Cr means hit the enter key)

    Type USERFKEY (Cr)

    C for create (Cr)

    6 (the numeral six) (Cr)

    <SUS> (Cr)

    diaryent (Cr)

    (Cr)

    (Cr)

    (Cr)

    hit the F3 key, then (Cr) then E for end.

    Now, press the Esc key then 1 and hey presto, you should be at field 3 of your current months diary.You can do this for fast tracking to say Bank Reconciliation or indeed, any other part of the program you use consistently.

    You can have up to 16 user defined functions keys, and they can also be set up on a system wide basis using the SYSWFKEY process.

End of month/quarter procedures for GST and a few good GST tips as well.

The BASECIR function on the Stamina system enables you to determine the balances, by month / quarter, of the relevant GST accounts as set up under the BASSETUP routine. Also, whenever you add a new account using CHART, you will be taken to a second screen to add the new account to the BAS...

Hints...To avoid having a large amount of sequence numbers to the BASECIR, don't print from the BASECIR -instead, view or print from BASAUDIT. Once you print a BASECIR, you will not be able to change it - you must Create a new report for the period. The highest sequence number for the relevant month / quarter is the latest BASECIR.

Don't forget that if any values in any accounts that are affected by GST have changed, you must run a RE-CALCULATE in the BASECIR to effect the change in the account.

There is a new feature called BRESOLVE. This allows you to see which accounts are attached to the different reporting segments of the BAS and conversely which reporting segments (ie G11 etc) of the BAS are attached to the relevant accounts. Remember, not all accounts need be reported for the BAS.

There are other reports which now allow you to examine the expenses affected by GST to help reconcile you BAS. These involve vouchers for Creditors, invoices for Debtors and amounts paid using CHEQUE. Look under the GSTREPRT menu.

Do you want to see your customers credit limit on the Detailed AR Trial Balance?

The setting in ARPARAM Screen 3 Field 1)Credit Limit, Fax No, or Neither on ARDETB will allow you to determine which customer information to be displayed on your ARDET Trial Balance.

"C" indicates that you wish to display the customer's credit limit.
"F" means you wish to show the customer's fax number.
"N" shows neither, but allows more room for the customer's contact to be displayed. Note: if you choose the "C" or "F" option, then the full contact name may not be displayed.


Do you want to be warned if your customer exceeds their Credit Limit?

The setting in OEPARAM - Screen 4 Field 8) Display Invoice Credit Warnings [ ] will determine whether credit details will be displayed on the invoice entry process (INVOICE).

If set to "Y", credit details will be displayed for every customer. If "N" is entered here, only credit details for those customers who have exceeded their credit limit will be displayed.


How to find which file to use when creating a Query Language Procedure.

1. Go into the process where you wish to extract your information from.
2. Enter dummy data eg. PRODMNT - Amend mode - Enter dummy eg.xxxxx the system will come back with record not on file PRODUCTS. PRODUCTS would be the file to use when extracting information from the PRODMNT process.

OR:

Use your F1 Help key then P for Program Help from within the process. Most program help processes will display the names of the file that stores the information you require for your report. Eg. VOUCENQ - F1 - P for Program Help displays the following details.

This process provides a quick facility to enquire on Accounts Payable vouchers. ie. The vouchers must exist on the "ACTIVE.VOUCHERS" or the "OLD.VOUCHERS" file.

Types of files used in the system:

Master Files
Each of these types of files is often associated directly with maintenance process on the menu.
eg. PRODUCTS file maintained by PRODMNT process
GLCHART file - maintained by the CHART process
CUSTOMERS file - maintained by the CUSTMNT process.

Transaction Files
These files can usually be broken down into two sub-categories: unposted transaction files, and posted transaction files. Unposted transactions files are usually maintained directly by a process on the menu, and can be listed using an EDIT list type process eg. EDITVOUC. The information that prints out via EDITVOUC would exist in the VOUCHER.ENTRIES file. When the Entries were posted via POSTVOUC the details are then copied to the ACTIVE.VOUCHERS file.

Other examples of transaction files are: GENERAL.JOURNAL, PRODUCTS.TRX.DETAIL, CUSTOMERS.TRANSACTIONS and JOB.TRANSACTIONS.

Index Files
There is nearly always at least one index type file associated with each posted transaction file. An index is a quick way of referencing a group of related records in a transaction file. Examples of Index files would be: CUSTOMERS.INDEX , PRODUCTS.TRX.INDEX.

Balance Files
These files are also built by posting programs, but also by "end of period" type programs. Balance type files contain summarised information and often monthly information, and are accumulated over a period of time. An example of balances type file is CUSTOMERS.BALANCES file. There is a record in this file for each customer on the system. Each record contains information on that customer's purchases, payments, outstanding amounts etc. These figures are kept on an "overall" as well as "monthly" basis. Another balance type file is the PRODUCTS.BALANCES file, which contains information about the quantity levels, average costs, purchases, sales etc. for the products in the inventory system.
Cleaning out your Print Spooler?

Use SPOOLDEL and clean out your Print Spooler regularly.

If you use the electronic mail, ie SENDMAIL, you should clean this up regularly as well. By using CLEARSNT and CLEAREC, you simply remove the mail from your immediate screen enquiry. It is still filed related to the job, customer, supplier etc and always remains available.


Applying Customer Credits

Use AROPENCR to apply any credits raised on Customer invoices. If, or when, you raise a Credit, you would normally 'contra' it against a relevant invoice. You must go to AROPENCR to do this. You can get a list of all unapplied credits through OPENLST and then apply them as necessary. This tidies up your accounts receivable ledger.


Ever wondered how you can check your data entries

There are a number of processes to show the break up of accounts posted. For example, VOUCENQ will show the break up of accounts used for a particular supplier's invoice, but, you can use others to show the general ledger break up.

PTFILENQ will allow you to examine the details of all postings made by a User by date; you then select the relevant posting and the details of the accounts, amounts etc will be displayed. Similarly, use PRTFILE to examine the postings by port number (or different users). Use the F12 (Find) key to select a port and input the desired date range, then select the desired port/date and the details of that posting will be displayed. But it doesn't end there! SOURCENQ and JOURENQ will display details of postings in different ways. Don't forget to use the F12 (Find) key when asked for the posting source and you can pinpoint the desired journal with ease. Running SRCDET will allow you to print out the sourced enquiry


Have you tried GLDRILL?

This feature allows the 'drilling down' of accounts by Group, Category, Account and sub-account to display the source of the entry to the system. It's a neat way of deciphering through accounts from the highest to the lowest level basically using the one screen. Use the F1 (Help) key as needed but if you haven't used this feature, at least take a look.


General Ledger Sub Accounts

Using sub-accounts is an ideal way of tracking expenses which will be liable for Fringe Benefits Tax. You can, for example, set up an account called 'Mary' and sub-accounts called Motor, Phone, Entertainment etc etc. Alternatively, you could set a sub-account called 'Mary' and have this as a sub-account of the main account of Motor, Phone etc. Either way, it facilitates data collection for FBT purposes but remember that if you are going to create sub-accounts, do it at the beginning of a month or period because by creating a sub-account, you are effectively changing the collecting pattern of the system.


General Ledger Trial Balances

A feature in GLSUMTB and GLDETB (General Ledger Trial Balances) allows the selection of data by either period OR date. This is helpful again for collecting data for the FBT year (1 April to 31 March) which does not coincide with the normal financial year. You can transcend years, even many years, to report on an account, or a range of accounts.


Do you know about the Walk Key?

Yes, by pressing the Tab key in a product code field or Customer or Supplier code field, you can commence to 'walk' through, forwards or backwards, by then using the F2 or F3 keys. Try it-you will see a prompt at the bottom of the screen, after you have pressed the Tab key, then step through as desired.


How to get to the bottom of a lengthy report quickly

Ever wanted to just get to the bottom of a lengthy report without having to press the Enter key a zillion times? Try this-when the first page appears on the monitor, type 'g'

Then type any large value, say 999. This is telling the computer to go straight to page 999, so, if your report is 900 pages long, guess what? You magically go to the last page. (now that beats pressing the Enter key over and over)

Ever been in the middle of something and you want to create a new Customer or new Job or Amend them?

Well, you can. By holding the Shift key and pressing F1, when in any field where there is a link to a maintenance menu, you will be taken directly to a maintenance screen for Customer or Supplier or Product, as examples. By holding the Shift key and pressing F2, in any field where you may expect or have a need to look up further details, you will be taken directly to an enquiry screen.

An example to ponder, using say ARDOCENT you need to create a new job; at the Job field, simply press Shift F1 and magically you will be transported to the Create mode of MAINJOB. Create the new job and when completed, you will be taken directly back to ARDOCENT where you can now insert the new job number.

Alternatively, if you come to the Customer code field and decide to create a new customer, Shift F1 will take you straight to CUSTMNT. If you are already in that field and you need details, or change details, on the customer, Shift F1 will take you directly to CUSTMNT but this time it will put you in Amend mode.

Also, say you are at the Salesman field in, say INVOICE, and you needed to change the commission rate for the salesman. If the salesman code was already selected, you would be taken directly to the Amend mode in SALESMAN when you press Shift F1 and you could make your changes, End out and be returned to INVOICE. If however, you had not selected any salesman when you pressed Shift F1, you would be taken directly to the Create mode of Salesman.

Try it with ARDOCENT or CUSTMNT or PRODENQ etc. If it doesn't work, go to TERMDEF and Amend your Terminal Code (most will be using ACCUWYSE) go to screen 4 and at line 11 & 12 you should see the following ...

P11 MNT 1 96 13 <Shift> + Function key 1
P12 ENQ 1 97 13 <Shift> + Function key 2


Overseas Currency

For those dealing in overseas currency, you may find this useful. In EXCHRATE (which is in the SYSTEM menu), each time you change the rate, the old rate is recorded on a second screen. So, if you update your currency daily, you will now have a detailed list of each day's rate from now on.


Keystrok

Have you thought about setting up KEYSTROK for your daily postings or End of Day functions. KEYSTROK allows you to record a series of key strokes (just as you would enter them in to the computer) and save the procedure. So, if at the end of a day, you normally carry out your posting to Debtors, Creditors, Inventory, print out reports etc etc and then set your backup, you can do it with the depression of just a few keys. For example, if you wanted to post all jobs and all invoices, here's how you do it.

Go to KEYSTROK and Create (call it POST)
POSTJLAB
Y
N
F
<RET>
POSTDOC
N
N
F
<RET>

Use upper case and it's a good idea just to run through the procedure and jot down the key strokes you make on paper and then create it. Basically, any procedure you run in the system can be set up using the KEYSTROK function. To run it, simply type RUNSTROK and then the code used and sit back-this way you don't make mistakes and you make sure that you don't miss any posting you want run each day.



Ever had accounts that you don't want anyone to touch?

Well, (if you're a Master user) go to GLPARAM and on Screen 4, enter those accounts, for example, Income Tax expense, shareholders loan account etc etc-you can enter as many as you like, then, on Screen 5, enter the users who you will allow access to the accounts on screen 4 (after all, someone may have to do some work on them!) Neat huh!


End of Periods

Don't forget your end of periods for Inventory, Debtors, Creditors and General Ledger. You can re-open a General Ledger end of period and so it's a good idea to close them to prevent entries being made in to them especially if your Accountants have finalised their work for a past period. You can't re-open the other areas, Debtors, Creditors etc-once they're closed, they're closed.


System Procedures for GST

By now, you all have realised that GST has changed our lives forever. It is, or should be, generally understood, that normal accounting, documentation and record keeping must be kept in good order (and timely) for the inevitable, you know what type audit.

Since the introduction of GST, decisions that may well have been able to be put off, must now be made pretty much straight away. For example, milk is GST free, so, it should be accounted for in a different account than the normal (GSTable) staff amenities account given that it must be reported in a separate reporting segment of the Business Activity Statement. The same idea applies to other accounts, e.g. some of your telephone account may be GST free (overseas) and there are more. The important thing to note here is that if it is not taken up correctly in the first instance, chances are that it will be overlooked and therefore, you'll pay more GST than necessary. Remember, that when it comes time for the BAS lodgment (every month in some cases) you will be up to your neck in crocs--just ask the people who are reporting monthly now!

It's most important therefore, that every account is examined closely when entering it into the system to make sure that the correct amount is entered into the correct account. The Stamina system will automatically take care of the GST amount so long as you've set it up correctly and the correct details are input.


Do you want to restrict access to processes on your System?

Set up entity access profiles via COMPROF

Entity security profiles provide an invisible security shield that allows you to select which options and processes should be available to which entities or areas of your organization.

There are no hard and fast rules as to which processes should be available - you must decide the security, if any, that best suits the unique needs of your organization.

This profile will only be activated when the "Use Entity Profiles" flag is set to "Y" via the "SYCONFIG" process


Do you want to restrict USER access to processes on your System?

Set up User security profiles via USERPROF. This only applies to Non Master users.

User Security profiles provide you with another layer or security on your system.

This profile will only be activated when the "User Profiles" flag is set to "Y" via the SYCONFIG proc


Where did Panes 12 and 13 from ARCHQREV go?

The questions regarding Bank Fee amount and Bank fee recovery.

These now have GST implications. You now have to provide the customer with a tax invoice for the dishonour fee, so you will have to create an invoice to your customer for any dishonour fees.

Do you want to apply credits when entering a Cash Receipt via ARCASH?

Set the following - ARPARAM Accounts Receivable Parameters - (Screen 2 Field 19) Allow credits on ARCASH Set this to Y and when you next enter a receipt in ARCASH and the customer has credits on their account, you will be able to apply the credits as well as the payment against outstanding balances. This will save you having to use AROPENCR to apply credits. Also, in OEPARAM, Screen 3, check 'Y' to auto apply credits to invoices.


SMARTDEF


User Smart Defaults can save you time with data input. If a smart default is enabled for a file eg. CUSTOMER, then when you are asked to enter a field anywhere in the system that is validated against the CUSTOMER file, "AND" there is no default established automatically by the system, then the last entry you made to any other field validated against this file in the system will be used as an automatic default.

For example, imagine you were to establish a smart default on the "CUSTOMER" file. If you entered a customer number into the customer maintenance process, "CUSTMNT", and then went to a customer enquiry screen like CHASDEBT", then the customer code you had maintained in "CUSTMNT" would appear as a default entry for your enquiry.

This allows you to more easily and efficiently link multiple processes together with hot keys, and generally moving between any related processes.

You can add or delete files via the SMARTDEF process. This process is user specific. If one user has smart defaults set up for certain files, this does not necessarily mean these same smart defaults are set up for all users.


How can I change an Employees Pay Award?

Under the PASPEC Payroll special procedures menu, you will find a process called CHGAWARD Change Employees Award. You will be prompted to enter the Employee Code. Their old award will be displayed. Simply enter the new award. Their Award will then be changed in EMPMAINT.


End of month processes will not run because of unposted transactions - Where/How can you check?

In most modules of your system you will have an XXUNPOST process. ‘xx’ being the menu name. This unpost process will be found in the Special Procedures menu for each module on your system. eg. AR for Accounts Receivable, OE for Order Entry and Invoicing, PO, IN etc..etc… To check for unposted transactions in the OEUNPOST, ARUNPOST, INUNPOST, POUNPOST etc.etc..

Each unpost process will display the process names used to post the transactions concerned. Find the problem transactions that are holding up your end of month process. Process the transactions, and then run the end of month again.

Clearing Printer Spooler


Have you ever wondered why there is a print spooler on your system (in those hazy moments somewhere between thinking about lunch and once consumed whilst sitting relaxed in the warm winter sun on a park bench out of the chilling wind and then afterwards attempting to look alert but really trying to wake yourself out of lunchtime slumber zzzzz) Well, there is a reason.

Most users would have their systems set such that when something is printed out, either to paper or to file, the system will keep a ‘copy’ of the printed document in case it’s needed (for whatever reason) It is simply a precautionary measure. You will find if you run SPOOLENT a large number of items just sitting there waiting to be re-printed or waiting to be cleared. The system will allow you to keep a large number of these on file but it pays to clear them out regularly. You do this procedure through SPOOLDEL. By clearing for all accounts, the system will simply erase the held printed files from memory—it won’t delete any records and if you need to reprint something already printed, you’ll simply have to go through the normal print procedure rather than the backup procedure you’ve just erased. So get into a habit of each week, deleting the spooler at SPOOLDEL and give the system a ‘flush out’

If you wanted to be really good, you could set up a keystroke so that a whole host of procedures could be run very simply and such that you don’t forget a specific routine. It’s all done in KEYSTROK but before starting, simply write down all the keystrokes you make to run a particular program (including the <enter>). The KEYSTROK routine emulates what you tell it. You can enter a routine that incorporates a large number of commands such as posting all invoices, times, vouchers etc etc and through RUNSTROK, you set the routine off to go through all the commands you would have otherwise had to enter (and chances are, you might miss one) Anyway, this makes it precise and once set up, you can run it whenever and you can’t forget a command.


     Short Tips
  • If a particular document/report normally prints out in large print, but is now printing in condensed print or visa-versa - try turning the printer off and back on again. Then try printing the document/report again. Also check and make sure the printer is set to the correct font size if your printer allows for manual setting of font sizes. Maybe someone has been printing something in small print and has not set it back to 'normal' print
  • To print a hard copy of the full details of query language procedures entered through QLMNT run QLIST.
  • Always try using the Help key (usually Function key 1) to resolve a problem yourself. When you are in the help screen, you can obtain help on the Field you are currently in by typing "F" or "E" for Editor or even the entire program by typing "P" at the bottom of the screen.
  • If you run any menu type report to screen (to see what details it would print if you did send it to a printer) and you have seen enough and want to end out of the report, but don't want to continue pressing <enter><enter> until the report concludes - to end out of the report before it finishes on screen press X <enter>and you will be back in the menu.
  • If you run a QL report to screen (to see what it would print if you sent it to a printer) and you have seen enough and want to end out of the report before it concludes, but don't want to continue pressing enter, try pressing Ctrl X <enter>
