    Customer Accounts: Description Field tooooo short!!

    Hi there

    We use Pastel express and the description field only allows for 40 characters - is there anyway of lengthening this? - I have a fussy Customer on board wanting their name in its Entirety!!
    Please help

    Unfortunately it is not possible to extend the length of the customer description field.

    However, with a little bit of manipulation in the Forms Designer, we can use one of the User Defined fields in that customer's masterfile and append it to the standard customer description data field on the invoice and statement layouts.

    Send me an email if you would like me to assist you with this.
