BATCH (JOURNAL) PROCESSING
CHANGE THE ALIAS OF A BATCH (JOURNAL)
  
TurboCASH has implemented this facility in this version to enable you to identify batches. You need to select a batch type and open it before you can change the alias of a batch type. You may need to select a specific batch type from theBatch List search facility to generate a Batch Type Details Report or to Export Posted Batches. If you do not utilise this feature to change the alias, you may not find it easy to identify the correct batch.

The alias is displayed directly after the batch type name in square [] brackets on the title bar of a selected batch type. For example, if you access the General Journal batch, General Jnl - [General Jnl] will be displayed on the title bar.

Restore button - click to display this screen to full size and click again to restore it to its original size. Title bar - double-click to display the screen in full size or to return to the normal size. Close button - Click to close or exit this screen.

 

After changing the alias for a batch type, the alias will be displayed in the square brackets [ ] on the title bar. For example, if we use the Payments Journal to record the Cheque Payment transactions for the March 2005, you may change the alias to display the Cheques March 2005 description.
