Both the consolidated and remote databases contain a table named ULOrder. While the consolidated database holds all orders (approved and those pending approval), the UltraLite remote database only displays a subset of rows according to the user that has authenticated.
Columns in the table appear as fields in the client application. When you add an order, you must populate the Customer, Product, Quantity, Price, and Discount fields. You can also append other details such as Status or Notes. The timestamp column identifies whether the row needs to be synchronized.
Browsing orders is accomplished in a similar method for each version of the UltraLite client application. By browsing an order, you are scrolling through the data in your local UltraLite database. Because customers are sorted alphabetically, you can easily scroll through the list and locate a customer by name.
To scroll down the list of customers, click Next.
To scroll up through the list of customers, click Previous.
Adding an order is carried out in a similar way in each version of the UltraLite client application. By adding an order, you have modified the data in your local UltraLite database. This data is not shared with the consolidated database until you synchronize.

In the Discount field, type 5 (percent) and click OK.
Because you have authenticated your identity as user ID 50, you are a manager that can perform all the same tasks as a sales person, but you have the added ability to accept or reject orders. By accepting or rejecting an order, you are changing the status of it and adding an additional note for the sales person to review. However, the data in the consolidated database is unchanged until you synchronize.
