First Time Setup

To initially configure the ADD4PC Data Collection Program for interfacing with the Perfect Practice Time and Billing Program, follow the setup procedure below.

  • Select SETUP|User Defined Export Format.
  • Create the following Export String: [QU][AC][E$][TS][DL][SP]
  • In the Name: box, type Perfect Practice.
  • Click Save.

Note: the export string can be created by clicking - in the following order - the Quantity, Account, Ext.Cost, TrsCode, Date(L) and Space buttons.

Next, select FILE|Export|PerfectPractice

Click Settings.

In the boxes labeled Transaction Code, enter the Expense Codes for each category (Copies, postage, etc.) between quotes. For example, suppose the explanation code for copies in Perfect Practice is COPIES;  the Transaction Code box for Copies should be "COPIES".  Perfect Practice is case sensitive. After completing all applicable Transaction Code boxes, click Save.

Make sure all Transaction Code boxes have applicable codes set up prior to using the Export option.
