The Spare Parts editor records information about an item that is used as a spare part for a unit.

Unit: Identifies the unit. (This field is read-only if you started from a unit record.)

Description: A read-only field giving the "Description" field of the unit record.

Make, Model, and Serial: Read-only fields giving more information about the specified unit.

Item: Identifies a spare part used by the unit. (This field is read-only if you started from an item record.)

On Hand: A read-only field giving the quantity of the item that you have on hand (the total in all your storerooms).

Description: A read-only field giving the "Description" field of the item record.

Quantity: The maximum quantity of the item that can be used by the unit. For example, if "Unit" is a room and "Item" is a light bulb used in that room, "Quantity" should be the maximum number of bulbs that might be needed in the room.

UOM: A read-only field giving the units of measure for the item.

Comments: Any comments you want to record about how the unit uses this spare part.

Save: Saves the current record. The editor window stays open in case you want to make more changes to the same record.

Save & New: Saves the current record and sets up the window for you to enter a new record. Fields in the new record will be blank or set to default values.

Save & Close: Saves the current record and closes the editor window.

Cancel: Closes the window without saving any changes you've made to the record since the last time you saved. When you Save the record, the Cancel button changes to Close, indicating that you can safely close the window without losing any changes.

Close: Closes the window. This button only appears after you've saved changes with Save or before you've entered any data at all. Otherwise, the button is labeled Cancel.
