This gives the user the ability to create a vehicle type that can be allocated against a stock record.


The user can then add their own user defined fields for the required information against each category created. This will create a new tab on a vehicle stock record which will display the user defined fields.


To create a Vehicle Category go to the Vehicle Parameters Maintenance screen and select the button for Vehicle Types. A window similar to the below will then appear:
