  1. On the File menu, click Sacrament Setup > Sacrament Place Names and Addresses.
  2. Before you add a new sacrament place, check the View Listing window to see if it has already been entered.
  3. If the sacrament place has not been entered, click Add Place.

    Useful Information

    You can also add new sacrament places in an individual's Sacraments window.

  4. Enter all the relevant information, and click Save/OK.

Defining Sacrament Tab Names

You can define and customize the Sacrament tab names in the Sacraments section of an individual's record. Some tabs are prelabeled. You should set up the tabs and extra fields prior to entering sacrament data for individuals.

 To rename or reorder the Sacrament tab names
  1. On the File menu, click Sacrament Setup > Sacrament Tab Names.
  2. Tab names are listed in the first column. Select the sacrament names in the order you want them to display.
  3. In the second column, enter a label for the first field that will display on each of the sacrament tabs. For example, enter "Baptismal Name" for the Baptism tab.
  4. Click Save/OK > Close.

Useful Information

The second and third tabs in the Sacrament Tab Names dialog box, Sacrament Definitions and Sacramental Register Options, are used as part of the setup for Sacramental Registers (purchased separately).
