It is common for many database records to have the same information in certain fields such as Manufacturer, Department, City, State, etc.
The Add Screen Default settings can automatically place that information in all new records. Any of the Keystroke databases accept initial field value defaults but they are most commonly used with the Inventory and Customer databases.
Examples of initial field value defaults for the Inventory database include:
- Formulas to calculate the Base Price and Sale Price based on the Cost.
- For groups of similar items - partial Description, Class, Department, Category, Minimum Quantity, Order Quantity.
Examples of initial field value defaults for the Customer database include:
- City, State, partial Zip Code, Tax Table, Price Table.
