Pc Mars Accounts Receivable for Windows

PC MARS Accounts Receivable Program is used for recording your business's receivables and printing statements, invoices and reports about them. It can operate alone or it can interface with both PC MARS or PC MARS PLUS general ledger programs. It accumulates non-cash transactions, and can post them to the general ledger when they become cash transactions. Optionally, it can post unpaid invoices to PC MARS (accrual version only) as accrued income line items.

All reports can be printed at any time. The statements are designed to be printed at the end of the month, or in the first few days of the next month. Invoices can be printed right at the point of data entry, or they can be stored to be printed later.  The receivable vendors can be set up on the fly.

Patch updates to Pc Mars Accounts Receivable Version 2.1

Problems were detected after version 2.1 was released.  A update patch is available to fix these problems, as well as to add more features. You can tell if any of these affect you by examining the version number, listed under "About Accounts Receivable" under the Help Menu. Examine the version number and note the changes made for higher versions than yours. Described below are the problems and changes made. Note that these update VERSION 2.1 ONLY.

Version 2.1.1

  1. Fixed an issue where, in certain circumstances, an "Interfaced" set of AR records was changing (in error) to "Stand Alone" when opened.
  2. For Accounts Receivable programs that interface with Pc Mars, the program will now post accounts receivable to Pc Mars to bank period zero for all items, eliminating some confusion users were having.
  3. The date for new accounts receivable will default to the current date for the first one entered, and then for subsequent ones will default to the last entered date.  This will make it consistent with Pc Mars which does it this way.  This also applies to the date entered on the "Receive $$ on Accounts Receivable" screen.
  4. An option was added under "Default Values & Controls", to allow tabbing to the "Find Inv#" function on "Receive $$ on Accounts Receivable".  Previously the user had to click on the "Find Inv#" button.
  5. Added some helpful right click mouse menu options.
  6. An enhanced open/view type of screen is now available for backups, just like Pc Mars.  This enhanced backup screen is available when "Enhanced Open/View Set of AR Records" option is selected under Miscellaneous Options.
