7.1 Introduction

This chapter explains how to create customer records in the Customer master file. Entering special shipping addresses for customers is also covered in this chapter.

The form that is displayed when the Customers choice when selecting the Select, Accounts Receivable Menu is selected is used to enter information about customers. The name and address of the customer is entered using this screen. There are also fields on this screen that identify the controlling and discount accounts as well as the sales tax locality and payment terms to be used when processing transactions made by the customer. When a customer record is displayed, the date and amount of the last payment made are shown.

The Customers Shipping Addresses choice on the Select, Order Entry menu allows special shipping addresses to be entered. More than one shipping address may be entered for a customer because each address is assigned a special code.
