Validating Account Codes

If you have enabled the text box option for account code entry you may want to validate the entry to avoid users making mistakes when entering data. When users enter an account code they have the option to validate their entry. If they have entered an incorrect code a message is displayed. All entries will be invalid unless you have created an account code list. The code listing could be an internally created database or extracted from an external database which may already exist.

infoNote: If the option "Users enter an account code in a text box" is selected without validate, any information entered in the text box is passed through to the PrintStation. However, even if a correct code is entered the account name and description is not shown as the code has not been checked against an internal or external account code list which includes those details. It is therefore advised that if you use a list of account codes that you select the option to validate the account code entered to ensure that all the correct information is available.
