    Help with invoicing



      Help with invoicing


      Hi All,

      I'm a bit new to using this software and am hoping someone has some advice on how to link up Invoices to Customer info.

      In the Invoice section I have a frop down 'Bill to' menu that shows all of my customers, however when I select one it doesn't input their details or do anything. I think something must have gotten altered when formatting it but not sure what. It looks the same as the template example.

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

          What tables and relationships do you have?

          You need a relationship that uses the "bill to" field to link your invoice record to a record in the customer info table.

          What data is entered into the "bill to" field when you select a customer's name?

          The templates are set up to display the customer's name, but enter their ID number. If you have a relationship that matches records by ID number (and you should), but your value list is entering the customer's name, then you are no longer matching your invoice record to a customer record by ID number and this will kep any customer information from appearing on your layout when you select a customer.

            Thanks so much for responding. I think I've got it sorted. My ID number wasn't appearing correctly but now that I've deleted it and put it back in it's full steam ahead. Thanks for the help!
