3.Press Enter.

4.A list of cardfiles will display on the screen.

5.Scroll through the resulting list to locate the preferred cardfile.

6.Double click on the cardfile to open it in View mode.


Create an advanced cardfile list

1.On the ribbon, go to CardFiles > Create CardFile List.

3.Restrict the amount of cardfiles to be searched by removing the ticks from those not required, eg. Customer, Vendor, etc.

4.Enter information required into applicable fields. Choose from dropdowns as well.

5.Click Run or press Enter once all information is entered.

6.Name the list by entering a short description in the field which displays List1 at the bottom of the screen. The list name will change in the Nav Tree as well.

7.Pin the list by clicking the Pin icon at the top right of the List screen. Once pinned, run the list again to save the data in the pinned list.



When a single cardfile is open, right click on it in the Nav Tree to take a prepayment or provide a refund on a prepayment or return. This is a very quick way to bring up the Payment or Refund screen for that customer/vendor instead of having to go to Debtors or Creditors.
