78 Set Up Statement Messages

This chapter contains these topics:

To print a personalized message on your A/R statements, you must first set up the text.

Navigation

From Accounts Receivable (G03), choose Statement/Reminder Processing

From Statement/Reminder Processing (G0322), choose Revise A/R Print Messages

When you add or revise a statement message, the system creates a key for generic statement message text. This key is stored in the Generic Text Index Key table (F00163) and the actual message in the Generic Text Entry table (F0016).

78.1 Entering Messages for A/R Statements

You can enter messages for a specific customer or for all customers within a company.

For example, you might enter the message We appreciate your business for all customers within company 00100. But you might also enter Thank you for doing business with us for 10 years for customer 1001 and Your business is appreciated for customer 3001. Therefore, when you print all statements for company 00100, We appreciate your business will appear on the statements except those for customers 1001 and 3001.

Field Explanation
Language Preference A user defined code (system 01/type LP) that specifies a language to use in forms and printed reports. If you leave the Language field blank, the system uses the language you specify in your user profile. If you do not specify a language in your user profile, the system uses the default language for the system.

Before any translations can appear, a language code must exist at either the system level or in your user profile.

Form-specific information

A user defined code (system 01, type LP) that specifies a language to use when you display information or print reports. If you leave this field blank, the system uses the language set up in your user profile. If there is no language specified in your user profile, the system uses the default, or base language.

Before any translations can appear, a language code must exist at either the system level or in your user profile. The language code at the system level or in your user profile must correspond to a language code assigned to the translated menu, form, report, description, title, or processing option.
