It is important that the Personal Computer (PC) system response be as close to the entry speed of the operator as possible so that productivity can be increased and frustration decreased. The speed of the application is directly related to the size of the files. Each time an invoice is created, a verification has to be performed to check the validity of the data (e.g., that the part number is a correct one) and supply system-maintained information, such as item description, price, and cost. The new method provides the techniques for accuracy and enhanced performance by the use of a small version of the catalog file. The new file is directly related to the catalog, but does not contain all of the information contained in the catalog.
