This sub window is used to define the range criteria for a selection of purchase parts. It is displayed on windows requiring their selection.

Enter data in the data entry boxes to restrict the range of parts. Parts must meet all criteria entered to be selected. If the left and/or right data entry boxes are left blank for a particular criteria, parts will be selected between the first and/or last otherwise qualifying part record. Data entry boxes can be populated by finding a single item using Keyword Search, drag and drop from the Parts ScratchPad or the Suppliers ScratchPad, or by double-clicking a list item from the Keyword Result window.

Data records can be obtained using one of the following methods or a combination of them (see Tip below):

Enter values into the selection ranges and use the Standard Search. The context menu provides a Clear Selection function.

Define or use a Custom Search.

Create an Ad Hoc Search Calculation using the context menu function.

Drag-and-drop one or more lines from a ScratchPad (or BoM and Where-Used Listing) onto the general window area.

Use the ScratchPad Transfer Selected function

Use the KeyWord Search Transfer Selected function

TIP: Using an Ad Hoc Search Calculation (3) overrides any Custom Search (2) and a Custom Search overrides the Standard Search (1). In any of the search cases (1, 2 or 3), ScratchPad Transfer and Drag-and-Drop or KeyWord Search Transfer (4, 5 or 6) is combinational, so that records found using any of these methods must also conform to the search criteria adopted.

Note NOTE: This window contains fields introduced with version 5 that enable additional search (and sometimes sort controls), such as Adhoc extra where. For more help on their use and examples see the Client-Server SQL Introduction help.
