The projected date for the item's return.
If you enter "+30", the program proposes the date that comes 30 days later.

Enter the return date.
Loan of a book
- Enter the date. If you click ".", the date of the day is automatically written.
- In the Item Id column, as you start typing the title of the book or library user, the program will display all choices available in your database; just select the right option and press the F6 key: the program will automatically fill the Item Id and Description cells.
- In the Expiration column (date of return for the book) the program automatically uses a date 30 days after your current date, but you can manually change that: you can enter the number of actual days (for example +40) to generate the correct return date (40 days later).
