Printing 'PAID' on invoices

Post by woodywoodhouse » 29 Oct 2004 15:26

I have noticed when editing the supplied invoices in the forms designer a lovely light blue "PAID" in the remittance section. Any ideas on how to get this to print when a customer has paid his/her invoice?
Thanks,
Woody.

If you print a cash sale using that invoice form, you will see "PAID" instead of the remittance advice.

As they stand, the invoice forms always print the remittance advice when printed for an invoice.

How to change? Look at the Visibility for the text object that says "PAID" (right-click it and choose Visibility... [control-click on Mac with one-button mouse]). The visibility is conditional with a value of Type = "CR@" (i.e. Cash Receipt). If you were to change that to Type = "CR@" or Type = "DIC" then it will print for paid invoices. (Type = DIC means Debtor-Invoice-Complete i.e. fully paid).

Visibility for the objects that make up the remittance advice is conditional on a variable SHOWREMIT, defined as an invisible object at the top-left of the remittance advice section. That, in turn, is defined as !CN and Type = "DI@". CN is defined elsewhere (means credit note. don't concern yourself with it just now). Anyway, if you change the definition of SHOWREMIT to !CN and Type = "DII" then the remittance advice won't show for completed invoices (DII = Debtor-Invoice-Incomplete, btw)

Worked like a charm, and now I understand object visability. Thanks,
Woody.
