Series Code Entry

Top  Previous  Next

Use Series Code Entry [suser] to set up Series Codes for tracking expenses by series/episode.  Please note if you are not tracking series expenses, you must setup at least a default Series Code (e.g., '0000') to be used in the transaction entry screens.  You can also use the Series Code like a Free Field Code to track other items such as all travel costs for all series if you prefer.  Please note a Series Code record can not be deleted once it has been used in PSL3.


If you would like to print a list of all Series Codes entered in the database, click the 'Report' module, then 'Setup & Maintenance' sub-folder.  Listed is the Series Codes List Report.





To access the Series Code Entry [suser] screen, click the 'Setup' module from the menu tree (see following screen shot).


You can also access this screen by typing the screen or acronym name in the blue prompt bar located above the 'Setup' menu.  Then, press Enter.




The screen then appears.






Production - Input the Production Code associated with the Series Code.


Series - Input the code identifying the series which can hold up to four alpha/numeric characters.  After entering the new Series Code, PSL3 asks, "That Series Code is not in the database.  Would you like to add it?".  Select 'Yes'.


Description - Input the name of the series which can hold up to 30 alpha/numeric characters.

To delete an unused Series Code, place your cursor in the specific Series Code you want to delete and press the F10 Key or select the 'Delete' icon .  Red strike-through lines appear which are deleted upon saving.
To search for an existing Series Code, press the F7 Key or select the 'Find' icon when the screen is clear.  All records appear in which you can scroll through using the 'Arrow' icons (First, Prior, Next and Last) or by pressing the 'Page Up' or 'Page Down' Keys until you find the code needed.
