Tips

  • Press PAGE DOWN or PAGE UP while on a field to go to the same field for the next or previous contributor in the list. For example, if the cursor is located in the Cash Contribution field for the first contributor and you press PAGE DOWN, the cursor moves to the Cash Contribution field for the second contributor. This is helpful if you want to update the same information for multiple contributors.
  • You can add up to 999 contributors for each 990 client.
