Example 1

To remove specific line numbers:

[RemoveFromSales]
TypeOfTransactions = ALL
FirstLine = 1
RemoveLines = 4,5,6,B
RemoveLinesBeginningWith = ""

[RemoveFromPurchases]
TypeOfTransactions = POR,PIN
FirstLine = 4
RemoveLines = 2,3,B
RemoveLinesBeginningWith =""

 

Where

Parameter

Description

TypeOfTransactions

Type of Transactions to alter

NONE, ALL or (SIN SOR SQU SRI SJI SCR SJC PCR POR PQU PJC PPI PIN)

FirstLine

The line description number, which will appear in line where stock code is specified. 

RemoveLines

Additional lines to remove.  To remove any blank lines specify “B”

RemoveLinesBeginningWith

If specified, between the quotes, then removes lines beginning with character specified. 

Note : if specified then RemoveLines numbers are ignored.

In the example above, on the sales side all transactions will have lines 4,5,6 removed. So only lines 1,2 and 3 appear on Sales Transactions.

On the Purchase side only POR and PIN’s will be affected. These will have top line as the 4th line on the stock description (FirstLine = 4), and have lines 2,3 removed. Only lines 4,5 and 6 will appear on POR and PIN transactions.

Note : If “FirstLine” specifies a blank description line then line 1 will remain in transaction. If stock description line starts with a space then the plug-in WILL NOT DELETE LINE the line.

These settings are shown in the Exchequer Enterprise Help >> About window

Example 2

Remove all lines beginning with “.” from Sales Transactions only

[RemoveFromSales]
TypeOfTransactions = ALL
FirstLine = 1
RemoveLines = 4,5,6,B
RemoveLinesBeginningWith = "."

[RemoveFromPurchases]
TypeOfTransactions = NONE
FirstLine = 4
RemoveLines = 2,3,B
RemoveLinesBeginningWith = ""

The parameter RemoveLines is ignored because RemoveLinesBeginningWith has been specified. Note this method of removal is faster than the first example when FirstLine = 1, because it does not have to lookup each stock record to compare the stock description lines.
