The various forms that are used can be edited here. Page Up or Page Down , to view each form in turn. Note that CAFAM writes this date to the default file called FPGEPRP.DBF. Each user is assigned their own copy of this file and is identified by the suffix of their login initials, e.g. FPGE_JD.DBF. For changes made here to take effect you must delete the Users previously assigned file, CAFAM will create a new file on detecting the old one being deleted. Some of the forms have a special significance in the way that they are defined.
1. Forms which would relate to Purchase Orders (e.g. TITLE=ORDER) must be set in the field RELEASE with the letter "O". Only those with this setting = "O" will be listed in the drop-down search when generating and printing a Purchase Order with regard to the Release required from the Supplier
2. Forms which would relate to Sales Orders (e.g. TITLE=CERT1A, CERT2 etc) must be set in the field RELEASE with the letter "C". In addition in the case of PSP Users, a level number must be entered. This ensures that compatible releases or better can be used during Parts Issues. Only those with this setting = "C" will be listed in the drop-down search when generating and printing a Approved Certificates with regard to the Release required by your Customer
