Should you have any Open Item Debtors, an Open Item Selection screen will automatically be displayed. This screen will list all debit transactions as well as the opening balance (if any) for the debtor account you have selected in the account field for a transaction. This Open Item selection screen will be displayed in the following cases:
  1. A Credit transaction for a selected Debtor account which is set as an open item Debtor account, in the account field of a normal batch entry screen on the Input - Batch Entry menu option. This would normally be the receipts journal or any other batch for which you have entered a credit transaction.

  2. Update or post documents if you generate a Credit Note for a Debtor account, which is set as an open item Debtor account.
To Select an Open Item Transaction on the Open Item Selection screen:

The Open Item selection screen will be automatically displayed when an amount (credit transaction) is entered for a selected Open Item Debtor account in a batch or a Credit Note document, which is updated or posted to the Ledger.
