When creating a unit record, you can use the Service section of the record to specify that the unit is covered by a service contract. By the same token, when creating a service contract record, you can use the Units section of the record to list the units that are covered by the contract. In both cases, if you click New Unit Service Contract or Edit, MainBoss will open a window that contains the following:

Unit: Specifies a unit that is covered by the service contract.

Description, Make, Model, Serial: Read-only fields giving information taken from the record for the specified unit.

Service Contract: The service contract that covers the unit.

Read-only fields: Provide information from the record for the specified service contract.

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.
