Detail Data Grid Ribbon Menu

This Help File Page was last Modified on 05/03/2016

Many MKMS data entry Forms have a Header, a subordinate Data Grid, and a Footer thus presenting what is essentially a three part structure:

1.A Header formatted with the purpose (e.g., Forms for an Invoice, Bill, Proposal, Purchase Order) and certain basic characteristics of that Form (e.g., Title Bar, Ribbon Menu, and fields for the creation date, control number, employee code)

2.A Data Grid with Detail Line Items containing the specific records associated with the Header part of the Form (e.g.,the actual items that were sold, items that were purchased, items being proposed, items being ordered)

3.The Footer formatted with general comments, totals for columns within the Data Grid, and the Form's Status Bar (e.g., providing creation date, created by, last update, updated by, printed, edit mode)


Often the Detail Data Grid (see #2 above) - (i.e.,  its Detail Line Items) - will also have its own dedicated Ribbon Menu, typical examples of which are shown below.
