Basic Data Input Tips

1.As you navigate the program, if a button is dimmed, it just means it’s not applicable or available for that window.


2.To enter data into a field, use the spin buttons, or highlight the field and type in a new value and then click in another input filed to "register" the data you just entered.


3.You can use the Tab key to advance to another (usually the next) entry.  DON’T USE THE “ENTER” KEY!


4.If an entry doesn’t “stick” (stay in place), just highlight the cell, Delete it, and re-enter.


5.Occasionally you will encounter checkboxes, where you check or uncheck depending upon your intent.
