  • 2010-01-28 Adapted from MS Access version
  • 2010-02-05 Added fields: InvcNum, Notes
  • 2010-02-09 Added field: ID_Debit
  • 2010-02-11 Added field: WhenEdited


  • InvcSeq is used to generate the invoice number. I'm thinking [invc ID [zero-padded]]-[invc pfx]-[InvcSeq] would be sortable and would provide a validity check (i.e. nobody could just make one up because of the ID).
    • Perhaps this field should be changed to INTEGER. It was VARCHAR because I thought I might use some alpha characters at some point, like "12A". It's not clear if this can even be sorted properly in SQL. If the ability to insert between integers is needed, then maybe it should be a FLOAT and we could do things like "12.1" rather than "12A". For now, we have to use "ORDER BY (InvcSeq+0)" to make sure it sorts properly.


  • WhenPaid will be obsolete when Charges/statement functionality is working. It's already kind of useless...
