Item Search

Item Search is the section of the Invoice Screen where you ring up the items that the customer wants to purchase. You can search for inventory items by item number or by item name. You can set this parameter by selecting Toggle Item Search from the Tools menu. To add an item to the current invoice using the bar code scanner, scan the bar code of an inventory item when the cursor is blinking in the Search by Item Number box. The number will appear on the grid. If you are entering the number by hand, you must press after typing the number.

You can also partially enter an item number and then press the down arrow key < > to get a listing of all items beginning with those numbers. For example, if you know that the item number of a can of Coke begins with 0112 but don't know the rest, you can type 0112 then press < > and all the items whose numbers begin with 0112 will be displayed. If the quantity for an item you are adding to the invoice is different than one, you may change it prior to scanning or entering the item by pressing or clicking on the Quantity box. Note that the quantity can be negative and it does not need to be a whole number.

If the customer is returning an item, use a negative quantity. This will add a negative amount to the current total as well as properly update the instock amount of the inventory item once the transaction is completed. Once all of the items have been added and you have selected the payment method (cash is the default), press or click on End Transaction to complete the invoice.


Running totals are kept for the current invoice. Each time you add a new inventory item to the invoice, the totals portion is updated. If you are using a pole display, it will be updated as well.

Sub Total:

This line displays the total amount of all the items in the invoice added together before taxes or discounts.
