Interest Invoices

Every Invoice in Standard ERP will belong to one of five types: Invoice, Cash Note, Credit Note, Interest Invoice or Project Invoice.

One implication of this classification is that Invoices can be printed using different Form Templates, depending on type. You must therefore connect a Form Template to each Invoice type before you can begin printing. It may be that you decide to use the same Form Template for each Invoice type, but if so, you must still explicitly connect the Form Template to each Invoice type separately.

The primary purpose of this option is to allow you to specify the Form Template that will be used when you print Interest Invoices. An Interest Invoice is one created using the 'Create Interest Invoices' Maintenance function or one entered directly to the Invoice register with a Payment Term of the "Manual Interest Inv." type. To do this, highlight 'Interest Invoices' in the 'Forms' list and select 'Define Form' from the Operations menu. In the subsequent 'Form Definition' window, specify a Form Template using 'Paste Special' if necessary. The 'Form Definition' window is fully described here.

If you have not specified a Form Template for Interest Invoices, the message "No form defined. Please check the form definition" will be displayed when you try to print an Interest Invoice. If you are shown this message when printing a range of Invoices, check the type of the Invoice to see which one is missing its Form Template.

Although you can design different Form Templates for use with Invoices of the different types, the fields that you can use are the same in each case. Please click here for a list of the header fields and here for the row fields.

You can also use this option when you need to print Interest Invoices. If you double-click 'Interest Invoices' in the 'Forms' list, the 'Specify Interest Invoices' window will open:

As the only Invoice Type option that is selected by default is "Interest Invoice", you can specify a range of Invoice Numbers in the No. field and only the Interest Invoices in that range will be printed. You can of course select other options if you need to print Invoices of other kinds. Apart from the default Invoice Type selection, the 'Specify Interest Invoices' window is identical to the 'Specify Invoices' window: please refer here for full details.
