List of Fields in the Table
To avoid having to enter the same text, such as "Shipping Charge" or "Monthly Depreciation," again and again, you can enter the text in the Standard Text table and set up a code to identify it. Then, when you enter the code in the No. field on a line where the Type field is Blank (for example on an invoice), the program will enter the entire text in the description field. You can also enter a question mark followed by the code in a text field (such as the Description field in a general journal), and the entire text will be entered in the field.
For example, if you have set up the code TE for the text Travel Expenses and then enter:
?TE, followed by Enter,
the program will enter the following text: Travel Expenses.
If there is an extended text attached to the standard text, it will only be inserted if you enter the standard text code in the No. field on a line where the Type field is Blank.
Using the standard text feature helps you to ensure consistent wording.
