8.1 Show Lower Deck
For the Employee menu to be visible, the Edit Employee dialog or the New
Employee dialog must be open. Select Employee from the Payroll menu
to call up the Employee window. Select New from the File menu or type
in the keyboad command equivalent, <cmd-N>, to call up the New Employee dialog.
Alternately, double-click on an employee information line in the Employee window to
call up the Edit Employee dialog.
The purpose of the selection at the top of the Employee menu is to change
the information displayed in the lower deck of the Edit Employee dialog or the
New Employee dialog. The type of information displayed depends on the actual
name of the menu selection, which varies as shown:
Figure 8.1.1 -- Show Commands
If you select the Show command when the menu item reads Show Paycodes
then the Paycodes lower deck in the Edit Employee dialog or New Employee
dialog will be displayed. If, rather, you select it when the menu item reads
Show Transactions, then the History lower deck will be displayed in its
stead. See section 4.5 Employees for
more information on these windows.
