    Pastel Customised Invoices

    Hi, I have customised my invoice format in Custom/Forms/New Forms and have saved as .enz and copied this over to my company folder I need the invoice format for. However, when printing the invoice, it keeps defaulting to the general Pastel format. What am I doing wrong?

    Have you used the correct name for the Invoice as this is very important.

    There are many possible different form file names. The format of these names is:

    NNNNNNNPPPXYZ.ENG

    where:

    NNNNN is the file name. The default names are:
    CSDOC for all customer and supplier documents
    CSMTH for customer statements and supplier remittances
    ISTRF for store transfer documents
    BOMSLIP for manufacturing pick lists

    PPP can be "PDF" or nothing. You use this for forms that you email in PDF format. This lets you have a separate version of each form in PDF format.
    X is the paper type, and can be either C (continuous, for dot-matrix printers) or S (single sheet, for laser and inkjet printers).
    Y is the paper style, and is one of P (plain), R (pre-printed), or H (header pre-printed). It does not apply to store transfer documents:
    The plain option means the system prints on plain paper. It will print boxes, lines, and all headings.
    The Pre-printed option means the system prints on paper that usually has lines and boxes pre-printed.
    The Header pre-printed option means the paper has lines, boxes, and the company information pre-printed.
    Z is an optional identifier you can use if you wish to have separate layouts for tax exclusive and tax inclusive documents. If there is no character, the system uses the same layout for exclusive and inclusive layouts. If you wish to have separate layouts, use I for tax inclusive and E for tax exclusive. This character of the file format is optional, and it does not apply to store transfer documents.

    So my new Invoice Name is CSDOCSP.ENZ

    Hi Mike, thanks. I am using CSDOCSP.ENG and saving as .ENZ. Have just redone it again but still doesn't work...

    Mine is also kept in my company folder. Try "removing" the pastel default by renaming the .eng to .bak (you can always name it back to the original later)

    If it still continues to use the "default" then it is using something other than CSDOCSP or it is finding the default elsewhere.

    Mike, I have xxx15 and xxx16 versions of the company I'm working in. I also have a xxxTEST version. I have copied the .enz file over to the TEST version, and the invoice prints perfectly on the customised format. Strange?? I will try renaming the default now and see if that works.
