Age Customer Accounts

Age Customer Accounts

Application Overview

In the Customer file there are four fields that store the age amounts for period‑1, period‑2, period‑3, and period‑4 for each customer as of the last age date. The primary use of these fields is for display during Customer Account Inquiry or for use with the Report Writer. In order to keep these fields current, it is necessary to age customer accounts periodically. These fields are up­dated through Print State­ments (if print aged totals is Y), or by run­ning this application. Because statements are usually only run once in a period, these age amounts may not be current. This application can be run as many times as needed to keep these age amounts current between statement periods.
