    You need to use the form designer. Bit of a learning curve, I must say it's one thing that I don't like about Pastel. Basically pastel stores all it's document designs in a folder and categorizes them according to customer/supplier documents and other documents, as well as the type of paper they are printed on, language they are in and whether or not they are pre-printed or not.

    You would need to change each document that pertains to your invoices. It took me a while to do this and I'm not sure I can give you an accurate how to, but I'm sure Neville can help.

    If all else fails, use the Pastel Help feature and check out the form designer section. It's what I used and managed to find success eventually.

    Prepare your logo as a .jpg or .bmp file and save say on desktop. Now open your csdocsp.enz with forms designer. At the top go to "insert picture". Now select the position and size of the box using the "cross" cursor. On the right hand side will be options . Click on 3 dots to the right of "picture" and this will then ask you for the location of the logo e.g. desktop. Click on the logo file and it will be pasted into the box.
    Done !!!!

    Obviously save the .enz file afterwards in your company folder

    Hmmm, looks like I've been sleeping today - I only saw this thread now!

    Martin's advice is good, but I would add one more suggestion. Save the logo file in the company folder as well, so that it gets backed up with rest of the database.

    Kim, if you are still finding it tricky to follow the advice so far, drop me a line and we can arrange a remote TeamViewer session and I will literally show you how to do it, as though I was sitting next to you at your computer.

    The process is easy enough to understand, but of course when I try and insert the picture - I get the error message 'picture invalid' Pic in question was originally a .png file which I saved as a .jpg (even tried saving it as a .bmp) but received same error message on both formats.

    Kim, I can't imagine what you might be doing wrong but, since you are up bright and early this morning, why don't you give me a call at 7am after downloading TeamViewer onto your desktop?

    Oh, by the way, there will be no charge!
