There are two types of dates used with each module in Total Order Plus, the current system date and the application date. The current system date is displayed at the top of the TOP Main Menu. The application date is the date that displays at the top of each TOP Main Menu in each module.
The application date is set for each module from any menu within the module by pressing the F5 key. Each module has its own application date. This date is used to post entries to the General Ledger, allowing postings to prior or future periods in one module without affecting other modules. The application date is used for the order and invoice date, statement date, purchase order date, etc. for each module.
The application date does not get changed automatically by the system and the user is responsible for maintaining the appropriate posting date. Below is the screen image you will see when you press F5 in any TOP module:
