Define your own search settings

Written by Marcel Thijssen on . Posted in Exact Globe

Within Exact Globe Next, you have the option to define your own search settings within the user settings. This blog post will further explain the available options. You can access the user settings via the menu [System, General, User settings] and by clicking the tab ‘General’. The screen below will now appear.

Within the section Filter, you have the following options:

Numbers of rows
Indicate here how many rows you want to see in selection screens by default, for instance, for general ledger accounts. For example, if you would enter 10 by viewing the general ledger accounts, you would only see a maximum of 10 general ledger accounts at the same time. If you click ‘Next’, you will see the following 10 general ledger accounts, etc.…

In the selection screen, the number of rows can be adjusted to another number, but after closing the selection screen and restarting the selection screen, a maximum of 50 rows will be shown again. By using the buttons ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’, you can browse through the different rows.

Automatic selection
Here, you can indicate which options need to be shown if you press F5 in a certain entry screen if a value has already been entered or is suggested. For instance, you entered VAT code 3 in a screen for entering entries, while this doesn’t exist. This is a so-called ‘Invalid reference’. Exact Globe Next will then check what you indicated for ‘Invalid reference’ in this screen. If VAT code 3 does exist, but has already been entered, Exact Globe Next will check what you indicated under ‘Data already exists’. Depending on what you indicated here, Exact Globe Next will offer you the following options:

  • None: All possible choices are always shown.
  • Starts with: All possible choices that start with the indicated code (in this case: 3) are shown. If there are no VAT codes that start with 3, it will still show all possible choices.
  • Contains: All possible choices that contain the indicated code (in this case: 3) are shown. If there are no VAT codes that contain the value 3, it will still show all possible choices.
