Keys

View

Find

To locate a specific part. Use the mouse or key board to enter some value in a field and confirm with an OK. The system will locate the closest match to the entered data and display the part record details. This function operates with the Part Maintenance window.

Tip TIP: Normally, when performing a Find operation the window is cleared of data. Some uses may prefer to change existing window data when doing a Find. This is achieved by checking the Do not Clear Window when Performing a Find default setting in the Settings Maintenance Subwindow window found in File -- Preferences -- User Settings.

Ctrl+F

Next

The system will find the next part using the index of the value previously entered during the Find command. If it cannot find a part it will find the first based on the same criteria. In this way you can cycle through the part records. This function operates with the Part Maintenance window.

Ctrl+N

Previous

Finds the previous part based on the index used by a previous Find. If you are on the first record, the system will find the last. In this way you can cycle through the parts in descending order. This function operates with the Part Maintenance window.

Customisation CUSTOM CAPABILITY: oCustom1.$NewPartRecordInit(), oCustom1.$NewPartRecord() and oCustom1.$NewPartRecordSave() provide hooks for you to build custom methods to change or verify the way Part Numbers and other values are set by users. For instance, a method could be written to prevent the user creating a part record without entering data in particular fields.

Customisation CUSTOM CAPABILITY: oCustom1.$PartNoAfter() provides a hook that could be used to provide part number format verification. After data entry, the procedure would check for a valid format and report deviations and prevent further progress until rectified.

Ctrl+I

When duplicating a part which has a BoM Structure, Process Route, Quality Assurance Regime and/or Serial Number Structure, you will be asked if these too are to be duplicated for the new part. You must have appropriate privileges for each data set and the Serial Number structure will not be offered if the BoM is not duplicated.
