A single returned book affects inventory, sales, commissions, royalties,

Easy, Accurate Credit Memos
Programs for entering/editing/printing credit memos are easy to learn.
Fast searches make it easy to look up customer account and invoice history
during credit memo entry.
Track reasons for returns.
As you enter each title being returned, you can view all prior shipments of
