The Total Purchases field displays the total dollar amount the Customer has purchased and may be displayed on the Enter Customer for Sales Transaction screen by enabling the Total Purchases Customer Entry Display Parameter option.
This field is automatically updated when a Sales Invoice for the Customer is saved. It is normally not updated for other Sales Transaction Types (Layaways, Sales Orders, etc.) until they become Sales Invoices.
Each Sales Transaction Type may be configured to update Total Purchases by enabling the Sales Transaction Type's Total Purchased Update Parameter.
Total Purchases is continually updated unless reset either manually or by using Search & Replace.
The most common reason to reset Total Purchases is to have it represent the total as of a specific time, such as the beginning of each year.
It is not recommended to reset the Total Purchases field.
