Field Descriptions




The code that relates to the account. MYOB EXO Business automatically assigns a code. If you prefer, you can change the code by overtyping it. This code is primarily used for controlling the sorting of reports but also allows you to search a creditor. E.g. SMIT1 (Mr Smith) or JON1 (Jones Co Ltd).
