Source Doc: Each Data Sheet can be assigned to only one transaction. If the same information needs to be recorded on another transaction, you will have to create a second Data Sheet. See the section below on Coping a Data Sheet.
Version: The Version Number is a required field. By default, all new Data Sheets will be set to 1. You can change this to a different value if needed. This is an alphanumeric field.
If you change the Version Number on an existing Data Sheet, you will be asked:
Do you want to store a Revision of the current Data Sheet?
If you answer YES, see section below about Versioning a Data Sheet.
If you answer NO, you will be asked:
Do you still want to change the Version Number?
If you answer NO again the Version Number will revert back to the original value.
If you answer YES, the new Version Number will be used without saving the prior version to history.
