In the Line Items section of a purchase order, when you click Receive on a Miscellaneous line item, MainBoss displays the following:

Entry Date: A read-only field giving the actual date and time when this entry was made.

Effective Date: The date/time that you want to say the miscellaneous item was received. The default is the current date and time.

User Contact: A read-only field giving your name. This will appear in MainBoss's accounting history to show who recorded the receipt.

Read-only fields: A series of read-only fields giving information from the purchase order.

Receipt: The receipt where this miscellaneous item was received. (This may be a read-only field if you started from a receipt record.)

Read-only fields: A series of read-only fields giving information from the receipt record. These fields also state how much of the miscellaneous item was originally ordered.

Use order remaining quantity: If you checkmark this box, MainBoss will use "Order Remaining" as the actual quantity you received. If you leave the box blank, you must fill in "Quantity" yourself.

Quantity: The actual quantity of the miscellaneous item that you received.

Calculated Remaining Order Cost: Read-only fields giving the cost of the given "Quantity" based on existing price information.

Use calculated remaining order cost: If you checkmark this box, MainBoss will use "Calculated Cost" as the actual cost of what you received. If you leave the box blank, you must fill the cost into "This Entry" yourself.

This Entry: The actual cost of the miscellaneous item received.

As Corrected: If there has been a correction for this record, this line will have read-only fields giving the corrected values.

From Cost Center, To Cost Center: Read-only fields telling the cost centers involved in this operation. MainBoss creates accounting records indicating the transfer of money from the first cost center to the second. These fields are only visible if your database has an Accounting license key. For more, see Accounting Facilities.

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

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.
