    Pastel File Names

    Well, I have managed to figure out the file name for a Tax Invoice after "googling" for hours... Can someone tell me the file name for a Customer Statement on continues paper??

    Hi Dientjie - that would be CSMTHCP.ENG (if you are using continuous plain paper) replace the P with an R if it is Preprinted, and with an H if it has a header.

    The format 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

    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.

    ENG is the language or country extension. The system runs in multiple languages. We assign a standard extension for each language. For example, if you are using an English version the form file names have an ENG extension. If you use a French version, the extension is FRE.

    No need to Google - it's all explained in detail in the Help file, under Forms Design.

    For ease of reference, I've attached a PDF screenshot of that section.

    By the way, the file name is csmthcp.eng (plain continuous), or csmthcr.eng (preprinted continuous), or csmthch.eng (header preprinted continuous).
