The Line Item Detail - Description field displays the Description from the item's Inventory database record.
Editing the Description on the Line Item Detail screen changes the Description for the current line item only. It does not change the Description field in the item's Inventory database record.
If the Description Check Line Item Entry Parameter is disabled, the Description may be edited directly on the Item Entry screen after it has been added to the transaction (without pressing [F3] to first display the Line Item Detail screen).
If the Description Check Line Item Entry Parameter is enabled, the Description must be edited from the Line Item Detail screen. If the Description is edited directly on the Item Entry screen, Keystroke looks for an Inventory item that matches the new Description. If it does not find one, it will display the message: "Item not Found! Proceed with Non-Inventory Item?".
Note: If the Merge Same Items Line Item Entry Parameter is set to any of the ON options (Warn, Auto, Auto - No Beep) and a line item's Description is edited in the Line Item Detail screen, Keystroke does not merge newly added items with that line item unless their Descriptions are edited to match it. This allows for the sale of multiple units of the same Inventory item with different Descriptions on the same transaction without having to first disable Merge Same Items.
