It depensd on your business model. For example, in some cases one may have a deposit being a type of payment record. In other cases, it could be simply part of the calculation.
no deposits or anything just a basic invoice.. looking for the proper string, thanks
Sorry I dont follow. In your first post you mention that you are adding a deposit field. Then you say "No deposit". I am not sure what you are looking for.
My point earlier was that it really was person preference based on your business needs.
I mean you could have your total due be:
subtotal + sales tax - deposit
You also could have it seperate where you have an entire new calculation: Total Due - Deposit
Its up to you.
