I could not get it to work either way. Figured I would ask you to be my second set of eyes, what I am I missing. Or is there another area you could point me to that will take the cut and paste so all of our notes will show on the invoice.

59 Databases Pro 7.X & Classic 6.X Descriptions - Hello! When working with VEDP and they recommended this software, one recommendation that was made to us, and we were told this option was available in the software. Was instead of printing our description on the nafta, that we use the Schedule B HTS Code Decription. As of yet, I have not found the option that would allow this to be done. Also, are you all in the process of making this software so that when putting in the appropriate HTS code the description automatically pulls to the Description section. If this software had that capability it would be much better instead of having to type it in. Let me know as soon as possible I am trying to get this set up for use. Thanks.
