          Before you use Micro Register you must first  setup  the  program
          with information about your business.   This is done by selecting
          option [S] on the main menu.   The company setup  consists  of  2
          pages and has 17 options that you can change.

          Company Setup Page 1
          Your options in Company Setup are:
          Changing  one line by entering the line number at the "Enter Line
          # To Change?" prompt.
          Pressing [F1] to save what is displayed on the screen and  return
          to the menu.
          Pressing  [F2]  to  undo  changes  and  return screen to previous
          Pressing [F9] to change all lines.
          [PgDn] to display second page of setup information.
          Lines 1 though 4 -   These  4  lines  are  your  companies  name,
          address  and phone number.   This information will appear on your
          invoices and statements.

          Sales Tax Codes
          Line 5 -  Are the sales tax codes.   You can have  up  to  4  tax
          codes,  the first code should be the most used as it is a default
          code.  If you have only one sales tax in your state then place it
          in code 1 and leave codes 2 - 4 zero.
          Line 6 -  This is the next  number  to  appear  on  your  printed
          invoices.    Micro  Register  automatically  numbers each invoice
          printed.   You may change this number at any  time  such  as  the
          beginning  of  the year.   After entering the next invoice number
          you will be prompted for an AUTO or  MANUAL  number.    A  manual
          number  would allow you to change each invoice number at the time
          of the transaction and a auto number would not.    Keep  in  mind
          that  Micro  Register  will  always keep track of the last number
          used,  the manual option just allows you to change the number  if
          you wish.
          Line  7  -      The  annual  percentage  rate charged on past due
          Line 8 -  The due time in days of receivables.
          Line 9 -  Three lines of information  to  be  displayed  on  each
          invoice  printed.    This can be used to advertise store sales or
          the hours of your business.

          Company Setup Page 2
          Line 10 -  Password Protection On:
          This is where you define which areas of the program you  wish  to
          password  protect.    Each line is menu selection of the program.
          After selecting option 10 you can then highlight the the lines by
          using the up or down arrow keys.    To  add  or  remove  password
          protection press [ENTER] at the highlighted number.  Pressing the
          [ENTER]  key  acts  as  a switch to add or remove the check mark.
          When the line has a check mark by it, it has password protection.

          Line 11 -  A password you can assign to  Micro  Register    which
          works with the information on option 10.
          Line  12  - These are the printer codes used to make your printer
          print condensed or normal type.   Many  printers  use  the  EPSON
          codes which would be 27  15 for condensed print and 18 for normal
          or  to release condensed print.   If these codes do not make your
          printer print in condensed format then check your printer  owners
          manual for the proper codes and enter them here.
          Line 13 -  Allows you to identify the 3 accounting total headers.
          These headers will be displayed on the Accounting Information and
          on the inventory file information.
          Line  14 -  This option gives you the option of allowing negative
          amounts to accumulate in the quantity on  hand  amounts  of  your
          inventory items.
          Line 15 - Allows you to save past invoices.
          Line 16 - Allows you to save past quotations.
          Line  17  -    An  option used for the printing the invoice or 40
          column receipt.  Entering an A here would always print an invoice
          or receipt.   Entering an N here would never print an invoice  or
          receipt  and  a  P  here  would  prompt  you with the line "Print
          Invoice (Y/N)?" giving you the option to print,  or not to  print
          at  each transaction.  After type you answered the invoice option
          prompt,  you must enter which type.   1 would be a 80 column full
          page  invoice and 2 would be a 40 column receipt.   To use the 40
          column receipt you  must  have  a  Star  DP-8340  serial  receipt

          To start The Micro Register,  at the C prompt,  type MR and press
          [ENTER].    After  the  program  loads  The  main  menu  will  be

          THE MAIN MENU
          The main menu is the central control area of the program.   It is
          from this area you will access the different modules of The Micro
          Register.   To select a menu option,  use the arrow keys to  move
          arrow pointer to the desired line and press [ENTER] or key in the
          number of the line.

          The  sales  transactions is where sales are enter and the invoice
          is printed.   After selecting option 1 from  the  main  menu  the
          transaction screen will be displayed.

          If  you installed The Micro Register with a manual invoice number
          (in the setup program),  you will be  prompted  for  the  invoice
          number.    Here,  you  can  enter  in the invoice number or press
          [ENTER] to accept the next number kept  track  of  by  The  Micro

          If  you  enter  in  an invoice number,  that number be be used to
          calculate the next number.  Keep in mind that this prompt is only
          displayed if you answered with  an  M  for  the  AUTO  or  MANUAL
          invoice number option in the setup program.
          At  the "Customer :" prompt you have 4 options.   The first is to
          enter a customer account number, which if exist, will display the
          customer.   The second option would be entering a customers  name
          this  would make The Micro Register search for the name you keyed
          in and display each match found.  To search by name you the first
          character must be a "?", i.e. to search for JONES, FRANK A.   you
          would key in ?JONES.
          When  a  match  is  found,  it will be displayed and you would be
          prompted with an "OK (Y/N/P/ESC)?" ( Here,  if you answer with  a
          Y,  or  press [ENTER] for YES,  and then be readied to enter item
          numbers).     If you enter an N here the next occurrence would be
          displayed,  and  a  P would display the previous match.   You can
          keep pressing N or P until you  find  the  customer  or  no  more
          matches  are  found.    The  third  option  would be to type in a
          customers name and address that does not exist  in  the  customer
          account  file.    To  do this you must enter a period (.) for the
          first character of the first line.  This tells The Micro Register
          not   to  search  the  files  and  allows  you  to  continue  the
          transaction.  The purpose of this is to allow you to enter a name
          and address to be printed on the invoice. The Micro Register does
          not save this name.   The fourth and last option here would be to
          press  [ENTER],  this  would  display  the word CASH and then you
          would be prompted for the first item number of the invoice.  This
          is used for cash sales and the  customers  name  address  is  not
          When  entering  an  inventory  item  number,  if  it  exist,  the
          description will be displayed and you will be  prompted  for  the
          quantity sold.   After entering the proper quantity, the price of
          the item and the extended amount will be displayed with an  "OK?"
          prompt.    Answering with a Y or pressing [ENTER] here would drop
          the the cursor down to enter another item.  Entering N here would
          back the cursor up under the "Price" column,  which  would  allow
          you to change the selling price by entering price code A,  B,  C,
          D,   or keying in an amount manually (at this point you may erase
          the line and start it over by pressing [ENTER]).   Another option
          at the "OK?" prompt is to enter a C.   This  is  for  entering  a
          comment  or  serial  number for the item being sold.   Pressing C
          would drop the cursor down below the items description  to  allow
          you  to  enter  the  information.   To quit entering information,
          press [ENTER] at the beginning of the next new line and you  will
          then  be prompted for the next item number on the invoice.   Keep
          in mind that each invoice can hold up to 25  total  lines.    The
          screen will scroll when it becomes full.
          When  you  are  done entering items just press [ENTER] to get the
          sub-total of the invoice.  Here the sales tax is  calculated  and
          the total due is displayed.

          received.  There are six payment types; 1 CASH, 2 CHECK, 3 CREDIT
          CARD,  4 GIFT CERT,  5 OTHER,  and 6 ACCTS REC.  If the sale is a
          CASH type, payment type 1 CASH will be displayed.  You may key in
          another payment type (1 though 6) if you wish.  When  the  proper
          payment  type  is  displayed,   press  [ENTER]  to  complete  the
          transaction.    Payment type 6 ACCTS REC can only be  used  if  a
          customer account is displayed.
          If  the  sale  has a 1 CASH payment type you will be prompted for
          the amount tendered or cash received.  You may enter  the  amount
          here and the change due will be calculated. This prompt can be by
          passed by pressing [ENTER].  If you wish to enter more items, the
          [F3] function key can  be  pressed,  which  will  return  you  to

          which can be changed in the [S] Company Setup (we will  refer  to

          Exempt (which are the sales made to customer accounts with a  tax
          number), total services, and total sales tax received.

          Do you wish to print a daily summary (Y/N/ESC)?
          (xx = the number of transactions for the day.)
          Answering  Y  or  N  here  would  print or not print the summary,
          pressing the ESC key would  return  you  to  the  "Enter  Option"

          [2] Zero Totals
          Option  2  is for zeroing your daily,  monthly,  and year-to-date
          totals.   This is a manual operation and must be done by you when
          the  need arises.   This means you should zero daily totals every
          day, monthly totals at the beginning of each month,  and year-to-
          date totals at the beginning of each year.


          When you press option 2, the following will be displayed:
          [1]DAILY [2]MONTHLY or [3]YEAR-TO-DATE

          Here  you  would enter 1,  2,  or 3 depending on which column you
          wish to zero.  After choosing the proper column to zero, the word
          DAILY,  MONTHLY,   or  YEAR-TO-DATE  will  blink  on  the  screen

          feature will zero the Total Sold,  Item Revenue and  Item  Profit
          lines  on  each  one  of your inventory items.  You will normally
          answer Yes to this prompt.     This  will  allow  you  to  easily
          maintain each of the 3 running totals of your inventory items.

          When  you  zero  the  daily  column the summary file will also be
          erased so before zeroing any column be sure to print your  totals
