Company Info - Fonts Card

This page describes the fields on the 'Fonts' card of the Company Info setting. Please follow the links below for descriptions of the other cards:

Character Set
Paste Special    Choices of possible entries
Use this field to control sorting in Standard ERP. In the UK, it should be set to zero. In countries where the alphabet differs to that of the UK/US, sorting by ASCII codes produces a list that is not in the correct alphabetical order: use this field to overcome this problem.

Paste Special    Choices of possible entries
Use this field to ensure the behaviour of Standard ERP conforms to the local accounting conventions in your country. If your country is not listed in the 'Paste Special' list, choose the "Default" option.

DB Encoding
If you are using Standard ERP to send and receive email, this field should be set to "mac" (all lower case) if the server uses a PowerPC processor (e.g. AS/400, AIX, Z-series). If the server is Intel-based, the field should be left blank. In Russia, enter "acyr" for PowerPC servers and "cp1251" for Intel servers. Please refer here for details about using Standard ERP to send and receive email.

Def. Mail Encoding
All emails are encoded to protect special characters in the text. This allows the recipient to read these characters as they were written. If you are using Standard ERP to send and receive email, the ISO-8859-1 (Western European) encoding standard will be used if you leave this field empty. If you need to use a different encoding standard, specify that here. For example, users in Russia should enter "koi8-r" to this field. Please refer to your local HansaWorld representative for further information.

Report Font Size, Edit Font, Report Font
Paste Special    Fonts in your system
These fields allow you to select different fonts for use on screen and in reports respectively. If you leave these fields empty, Standard ERP's default fonts will be used. These fonts are selected for maximum readability, and you should only change them if you have good reasons to do so. In non-English versions of Standard ERP, use these fields to select fonts with special character sets.

Paste Special    Languages setting, System module
If you are using a multi-language version of Standard ERP, the following options are available:

  • The language that you specify here in the Company Info setting will to be used in the 'Login' window and in all other windows, menus and reports.

  • If you specify a different language for a particular user (in their Global User or Person record), text in the 'Login' window will still use the language specified here, but text in all other windows, menus and reports will use the language specified for the user.

  • If you need Account Names in Nominal Ledger Transactions and in the Analytical Balance, Balance Sheet, Profit & Loss and Trial Balance reports always to be in the Company Info language irrespective of the current user's language, select the Account Description in Company Language option in the Transaction Settings setting in the Nominal Ledger, and ensure you enter an Account Name in the appropriate language in each Account record (on the 'Texts' card).

You must enter a language code that will be recognised within the Standard ERP application, as follows:
AUS English (Australia)
CANEnglish (Canada)
INDEnglish (India)
KEEEnglish (Kenya)
NZEEnglish (New Zealand)
PHEEnglish (Philippines)
SGPEnglish (Singapore)
SAFEnglish (South Africa)
USAEnglish (US)
ZWEEnglish (Zimbabwe)
FRCFrench (Canada)
AGOPortuguese (Angola)
BRAPortuguese (Brazil)
SLO Slovenian
USSSpanish (US)
SWESwedish, Finnish-Swedish

Multi-language versions of Standard ERP are produced according to need and will usually only contain a few of these languages.

The Company Info language is also used when printing amounts in phrases (rather than figures) in documents(e.g. using the "Amount in Text" field). These phrases can be printed in different Languages using rules that you have defined in the Values in Text setting. In most cases, the Language used will be determined by the Language of the Customer or Supplier in question. For Customers or Suppliers whose Language is unspecified, the Language entered in the current user's Person record or here in the Company Info setting will be used. Please refer to the description of the Values in Text setting for full details about this feature.
