document line entry

Facture, Factura,Invoice

Automatic entry:  
- Entering by an existing reference is the fastest operation.
- The software automatically inserts the characteristics of the product that you have registered in the references.
You just have to modify the prices if necessary. each modification (quantities, price, recalculates the entire tariff line according to your entry.
-If you call up the selection form from an existing line, you will be asked if you only want to change the reference, or the entire line.
-if you answer "Yes" only the pricing of the document will be kept.
Otherwise, the software will replace the entire line with the characteristics of the selected reference (pricing included)
In the selection window, you can access the detailed file of the reference by clicking on the icon located at the beginning of the line.
-In automated entry, the VAT rate reported in the document is the one recorded in the product sheet of the Reference you have selected.

Manual entry: You can enter an invoice line without going through the selection form. This implies that this invoicing line will not be taken into account in the calculation of the statistics but will remain included in the accounting operations.

 To overcome this failure, we suggest that you enter a generic reference, without description, which can be used at will.
(VAT calculation, year-end transactions, Transfer to your accountant).
