I have used A4 for 10+ years. I now have A5V5 and I like much about it except the lack of clear explanations about some features.

My immediate problem is getting the system to "post" entries between the transaction and the master tables. I am confused about the two "posting" setups. Program posting and Field Posting rules. Do I use one or the other, or both? The program system tells me that the fields will transfer, but nother happens.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

A posting field rule happens when the value of the field in the "from" table changes.

A saved post operation happens when the operation is run, either from the control panel or action scripting or xbasic.

A saved post operation cn be converted to xbasic, modified if desired, saved alone or combined with other xbasic statements.
