Throughout Inform ERP, you can narrow the list of data returned by specifying selection criteria. This option appear within the application as a Select data button, for example, Select Customers or Select Products. The available selection criteria depends on the data with which you are working, but the selection process is always the same:
- Click the Criteria Options bar along the left to expand the criteria on which you can filter.
- Select the check boxes beside the filter criteria.
- Values pop up alongside the criteria: select your operator, for example, Equals to or Not Equals to.
- You may optionally specify Additional Criteria that is not in the default list. You may also choose how to sort the results.
- Click OK.
Make sure you narrow your search as much as possible. If you keep it too broad, then depending on your data set, it may take quite some time to return all matching data. While searching, Inform displays the message "Please Wait, accumulating data," If this appears for long time without returning data, the only way to cancel is to "end" Inform ERP and start over. To do so, right-click the Windows Taskbar and choose Task Manager. On the Task Manager, choose DDI System Inform, and then click End Task.
