The following steps should get your sharecropped fields all recorded: 1. Be sure when the fields are defined that you have chosen the Share Crop option.
2. When you purchase supplies only enter the purchase for whatever you are paying for (if the landlord pays for his share then only purchase your share, if you buy the landlord's then purchase the total supplies).
3. When you apply supplies to a field that is sharecropped the program will ask you for the percent (or quantity) of supplies that are the landlord's. Enter the appropriate percentage or quantity.
4. The farming action will only remove your share of the inputs. If you originally purchased the landlord's inputs then you can go to Income, Sales and Deposits and use the Supply Sales Option to sell the landlord his share of the supplies. If you won't be paid until later then use the Invoice button (instead of depositing).
5. You can use the Print Invoice/Statement option to print a listing of all the supplies that the landlord owes you for. Also, when you print an enterprise statement, you can use the options in the lower left-hand corner to print the statement for Farm Inputs Only, Landlord Inputs Only or combined Farm and Landlord Inputs.
6. When the landlord later pays you, use the Sales Option for Received on Account and use the Deposit Now button.
With regards to setting up harvested crops in Initial Setup, normally you will only want to set up your share of the crops. Then you won't have to explain the landlord's share of the proceeds.
With regards to demo data, keep watching our website. We will be adding a way to download a demo project. In the meantime, you can always use the Copy Project button (in the Project Selection box) to make a copy of your real project. Call the project "Play" or "Test". This will give you a project that you can try new things with.
