Create Standard Letter

This procedure is used to enter the text for standard letters used in connection with receipts, credit memos, or review of accounts receivable.

The text is formatted based on the purpose of the letter. For example, it can be used to inform a customer that cash discounts cannot be used due to late payment, or that the invoices covered by a payment cannot be identified.
