Before you start entering your Songs or your Bookings, which we refer to as 'records', there are a few things you need to take care of.
First, many of the fields in each record rely on information which they 'look up' in order to fill in a field. For example, when entering a booking for a certain Venue, you will need to enter information about that Venue. Things like the Name and the Distance you travel to get there and back. That way when you enter a booking for that Venue the program can calculate mileage for your tax return.
OK, let's get started entering items on the Edit Menu.
Add/Edit Venu Locations
We are currently in Roswell, NM so our venue locations are listed in our copy of the program. Here you can see how the data is entered.
Clicking Insert you will be able to add the name and the Mileage. Enter the total Round Trip mileage. IRS says the mileage is from your 'Base' location to the Venue and Back...regardless from where you actually travel to and from.
NOTE: We are not tax consultants so check with IRS or your accountant.
Status choices here are for the Venue.
We use Tentative, Definite, and Canceled.
Other Add/Edit Choices
The other choices in this menu selection are all entered in much the same way
Browse Menu SelectionsWith each of the Main Menu options you will be presented with a 'Browse' screen which is a lising of all of the items in that particular database 'Table'
From here you have the option to View, Insert, Change, or Delete records.
View will not accept any changes you make when you click 'Ok'
