The “+”, “*”, “/”, “\”, “=” and “PgDn” keys perform special short-cut functions which enable you to enter information into batches very quickly and efficiently.
- “+” – Use the “+” to copy the column in the previous line. This works on all c olumns in the batch.
- “*” – Use the “*” key to copy and increment the column in the previous line. This works on the “Date”, “Account”, “Reference” and “Amount” columns only.
- “/” – Use the “/” key to copy and reverse the column in the previous line. This works on the “Amount” column only.
- “\” – Use the “\” key to reverse the sign of the amount in the current line. This only works on the “Amount” column.
- “=” – Use the “=” key to enter the amount required to balance the batch. This only works on the “Amount” column.
Note : Becoming familiar with the short-cut keys will result in substantial savings in data entry time!
