Version 8.1C | 2011-07-29 (Jul. 29, 11)


  • File | User Preferences allows a user to customize their Adagio Payables experience. An Implied Decimal option allows entry of amounts without having to type the decimal point. New settings allow you to place an image and/or large font text on your desktop. You may elect to have field names presented alphabetically in the Grid Column Editor, to make it simpler to locate fields to display. Users can choose what functions they want launched on program start-up. The “Auto-advance SmartFinder” option allows you to quickly “step through” a list of selected vendors for editing or processing. Grid Settings are now saved by user by database.

  • Optional Fields may now be validated against a list of permissible values. Users may add elements on the fly, or be restricted to selecting from only a valid list. Entry of an optional field value may be forced or blanks may be a permissible option. Fields shared between modules share common lookup values, but data entry options (such as add on the fly) may be controlled on a module by module basis.

  • Styles allow explicit control of how a Vendor record is displayed on the Vendor Grid. Styles control the background and font color and whether the font is displayed in bold, italic, or both. Styles are shared by all modules and can be applied manually to any master record. In conjunction with Filters it is possible to display important information about a Vendor by selecting an appropriate Style.

  • Filters allow you to display only Vendors meeting specific criteria on your Grid in a specific sequence. They may be toggled on or off using Alt-T. For example, a Filter might show only vendors with a current balance sorted by descending balance, or Vendors using a specific Distribution sorted in Vendor Name sequence. Filters can test up to 5 different criteria, and can test:
  • A field against a constant Balance outstanding > $5000
  • A field against another field Balance outstanding > Credit limit
  • A date field against a floating data Last invoice date in Last 7 days

  • Filters can be used to automatically assign a display style to records that match the filter criteria. The Filter Styles can be given a Priority, to control the ultimate display of a record that matches multiple Filters. Filters may be defined for an individual or public (all user) use. The Data Integrity Check function automatically rebuilds all the Filters defined in the database.

  • Users may now enter and edit batches of transactions while other users are posting a batch. If a vendor record is locked for editing while Adagio Payables is trying to post a transaction, that transaction is written to an error batch for later posting.

  • Calculate Vendor Aging allows you to calculate the value of Vendor outstanding transactions that are either Overdue (Aging) or Due for payment (Cash Requirements). The aging may be displayed on the Grid and Styles may be automatically applied to Vendors with overdue transactions.

  • Payment control fields have been added to the Vendor transaction inquiry screen, allowing a user with access to the Payment Control function to directly Force or Hold a transaction, or specify a maximum payment during transaction inquiry.

  • ExcelDirect buttons have been added to the Vendor Maintenance and Vendor Inquiry grids to allow you to instantly export a set of Vendor information to Excel.
