May 2014

Here's a neat little tip that's undocumented when entering a date in the grid.

Some of the "little" challenges of manually entering dates in the various grids throughout VISUAL...

Is it mm/dd/yyyy?  dd/mm/yyyy?  yyyy/mm/dd ? ...  You can easily mix up the month and day positions - which could greatly affect your day-to-day operations - and not in a good way.

Is the date you've entered land on a day that you're closed?  It's difficult to meet a ship date if it falls on the weekend.  It's hard to tell without having a calendar in front of you.

These are just a couple of things to consider when you have to manually key in a date in a grid in VISUAL.  Wouldn't it be great if you can visually pick a date from a pop-up calendar (similar to the available calendars in the header areas of orders)?

Well you can....just hit the space bar when you are in a date column of the grid.

Hit the space bar to pop-up the calendar.  Presto!

Space bar, select a date...done...move on

Who has time to manually enter dates anyway?  Not this guy.
