You can access the Mill List screen either by clicking on the 'Mills' button on the Quick Access Toolbar, or by clicking 'Lists', 'Mills' from the main menu. The screen above will open and give the user the ability to Add, Edit or Delete mills.


Some navigational tips to remember:


The yellow grid on the left side shows you all of the Active mills and provides a fast, easy way to navigate from one mill to another.
Clicking on the title of the grid will allow you to switch between Active, Inactive or All mills.
The four small arrow buttons in the top right-hand corner of the screen will move the focus from one mill to another either one at a time (middle two buttons) or to the first record or last record (outside two buttons). These buttons are in the following order: Top, Previous, Next, Bottom.
The File Control Toolbar is how you will add, delete, undo, save and exit.


Probably the most important field on this screen is the Mill Id. The Mill Id is a twenty (20) character unique identifier for each mill entered into the system.  All load tickets entered into the system must be assigned to a Mill Id in order to produce accurate reports. Since you will probably reference this Id often, take a few minutes to think of a naming scheme that works best in your company. It is possible to simply use numbers, but numbers are more difficult to remember.  The best advice is to pick a method of naming and stick with it. It will save you a lot of time in the long run.


The Contact field is usually the name of the owner of the mill.


The Company field provides up to 50 alphanumeric characters to help describe the mill in more detail


The Address, City, State, and Zip fields can either be the location of the mill or the contact information of the owner of the mill. The State field is unique in the sense that you cannot type directly in the field. Any key you press will automatically take you to the closest match within the Postal Code List. As you type the name of the state, the system will do its best to find the matching state name to save you some typing.


Email, Telephone, Cell #, Fax # and Alt # fields are self-explanatory.


In the bottom right-hand corner of this screen is a series of tabs with various extended information you can store on the mill.


Comments Tab

Clicking the Comments Tab will display a small box where you can type up to 250 alphanumeric characters as notes. This can be any information that you want to store on the mill that can't be stored in any of the provided fields.


Click the 'Print' button to print a report of the data displayed.


Click the 'History' button to view a list of all Load Tickets entered for the selected Mill.
