Up: Using Qba
Qba provides a window to track daily summaries.
Clicking the Summary icon(see figure 3.19) displays
the window shown in figure 3.20.

At the end of each day, you should close out the summary
window by performing these steps:
- Go to search mode and enter the current date. Once
you find the current date, be sure you are in ``Change Mode''.
- Enter the amount of money that you can deposit into the ``Deposit''
field. When you hit enter, the ``Over/Short'' field is
automatically calculated and the cursor is placed in
the ``Reason for Over/Short'' text entry for you to enter comments.
- Click the Day closed ``Y''es radiobutton to mark that you have
closed out the day.
- Click ``File/Save'' menubutton to record your entry.
The Summary database is very useful for reviewing daily business as
well as for generating powerful business reports using the
Qddb report generator.
You should only close-out a day when you're sure there will be no more
invoices processed on that day. Any late invoices after close-out
will be recorded on the next day's summary.
For performance reasons, you should stabilize your Qba
databases nightly when noone is on your system. Before
doing the qstall, be sure that all Qba windows have
been exited and that noone will be accessing the databases.
