Several edit screens in Genie use dropdown lists,for example, Payment Methods, Order Types, Currencies etc. The wording for these can be edited in the myGenie.config file, eg.
<!-- PaymentMethods -->
<Method Default="true">Credit Card</Method>
However some clients may not be used to having this type of information validated, or their existing data to be converted into Genie may have a variety of values that cannot be easily batch modified to fit. In this case it is possible to change the edit screen and switch to a simple textbox and if required, add a link to browse a validation list instead.
In myEditScreens.config file change this:
<Field Name="OrdPaymentMethod" Type="DropDownList" CssClass="orders_edit_qtr_textinput" ShowBrowse="false" Required="false" Width="170"/>
<Field Name="OrdPaymentMethod" Type="TextBox" CssClass="orders_edit_qtr_textinput" ShowBrowse="true" Required="false" Width="170"/>
Dropdowns that should not be changed are CatSerFrequency (as this is used to set up arrival patterns in Serials using the calculation values specified in the myGenie config file); and the Suppliers dropdown in Orders (needed to show the linked Supplier name rather than the OrdSuppID). A good rule is to always make a backup before changing any config file setting.
