ScratchPads: Supplier ScratchPad Selection

Supplier ScratchPad Selection

This window is used to populate the Supplier ScratchPad list with a range of selected suppliers. The selection can be made in the Supplier Selection subwindow, or by using a Custom Search, or from criteria selected on the Advanced tab pane. The window is opened from the Supplier ScratchPad by selecting Suppliers ScratchPad Options — Build New List.

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.
