6.5. Add/Maintain Consignee records
To add/edit/delete Consignees in the program, you can select Maintenance, then select Consignee's/Customers.
This will display the Consignment Maintenance screen. As listed below.
This screen is used to display/maintain the Consigned to/Customer file that is used in the program. You have basic Maintenance from this screen. You can Add, Delete, Edit, etc., using the Navigation system displayed at the bottom of the screen. To add a record, click on the + (plus) sign. To delete, just click on the - (minus) sign. It is all very simple and self explanatory.
There is also a Filter Bar at the top of the grid that states - Click here to define a filter. If you use your mouse to select this Filter Bar, depending on which field position is selected, you can filter out the records in the Consignee file by that filter. Such as if you click on the Consignee ID field of the filter bar, and key in STAR, it will filter all the records and only show you the records with Star in the Consignee ID. This goes the same in the other fields too. Here is a screen shot of this task.
To bring all the records back, just clear the entry.
