Clicking the Multiple button will allow printing for a combination of Providers.
The ‘As At’ date information will always show today’s date and cannot be changed.
The ‘Days for Aging’ field will default to 30 days, however the number of days specified can be changed in accordance with practice policy.
The ‘Number to Find’ will default to 10, but can be changed to find any specified number of outstanding balances.
The ‘Minimum Amount’ is used to set the debt level to select; if set to "0.00", all debtors will be selected. If you are not interested in debts below a certain level - for example, if they're not worth the cost of collection - then set the cut-off level here.
Click ‘Print’ to send the report to the printer, ‘Preview’ to preview on screen and then print from the ‘Preview’ screen, ‘Email' to email a copy of the report to an email recipient, 'Export’ will produce a CSV spreadsheet file or ‘Cancel’ to return to the previous screen.
