Tips and Tricks
For Text Strings –
using an F7 search box Macola allows you to enter a % sign followed by a
text string. Macola will
then search for that text string anywhere in the field the F7 search box
is searching on. For
example, if you are searching for an item number by item description and
you put “%cable” in the Starts With field in the F7 search box,
Macola will return all items that have the string “cable” anywhere
in the Description 1 field.
Macola’s F8 Notes Feature – If you add the following line to your
Macola7.ini file “CHECK-FOR-NOTES=YES” the yellow push pin next to
many Macola fields that allows for the entry of notes will change to a
push pin when there are notes, but will remain a yellow paper when no
notes are present, thereby alerting a user as to whether there are notes
without actually clicking on the icon to check for notes.
