Method for Writing a Backorder And Invoice At the Same Time

A method is described which permits the entry for a single transaction set in a PC system to be confined to a single entry set.

In accordance with this method, the user enters the header information (name, address/manager, etc.) once, and then enters a transaction for each item. Backorders and invoices can be entered under one header. The status of the received entry (as determined by the content of a user input field) determines whether the transaction will be considered to be an invoice (amount deducted from onhand and billed) or a backorder (waiting to be filled when inventory arrives). One reference number will exist for the transaction. When this part of the program is complete, the invoices and backorders will be separated into two different files (Invoiced - unbilled and Backorders). When all transactions have been completed for the header, all records will be brought together in the archived file (Billed invoices) and each will have its own date given and the same reference number (supplied by the system).
