Update the InvoicePrinted column after printing

You can make this column visible by using the Data menu → Columns setup command.

The program will update the content of the column Printed after the print preview, adding the text 1. This will allow the Select unprinted invoices command to only print the invoices with no content in this column.

Options tab

In this section, language-specific texts can be added, for example, to indicate final greetings or bank details for payment. Depending on the customer's language, the programme will display at the end of the invoice the texts saved for the language indicated.

Only one type of text can be entered, one for each language.

The texts entered here are taken over when printing all invoices, whichever print layout is used.

To enter a final text:

    Menu Reports → Customers → Print invoices.
    In the Options section, enter the desired text.
    Confirm with OK.

The text entered will appear in the print preview of the invoice.
