30.8.4 Updating an Employee Record

Updating of an employee record requires you to QUERY and display the employee record. With the employee record displayed, put the screen in the UPDATE mode by pressing the UPDATE <F4> button.


The system does not allow you to update the following fields:

Employee: This employee identification code is used for all payroll voucher transactions. Changing the employee code could make existing payroll vouchers point to a nonexistent employee.

Controlling Acct: Controlling accounts cannot be changed because each employee transaction includes this controlling account. A change here would cause distorted information.

You can, however, UPDATE any of the remaining fields. While the screen is in the UPDATE mode, tab to the field which needs correcting. Type in the new information by typing over the present data. To erase any of the data, use the Space Bar and space over the unwanted characters.

After the changes are entered, store the updated record by pressing the STORE <F5> button.
