The Calculate button will calculate the lease. Use this whenever you change lease calculation data.

The Save button will turn on whenever data has been updated. Press this to save your changes.

Use the New lease button to begin a new lease.

The Open button will retrieve lease data from a file.

The Help button will show help for the screen being displayed.

Data Input
Data is typically input into the white "sunk-in" fields. Dates are entered in either a "mm/dd/yyyy" or "dd/mm/yyyy" fashion (depending on your predefined preference) and you do not need to type the slashes. Telephone numbers are entered as (nnn) nnn-nnnn. Again, you only need to type the numbers. 

Certain fields will automatically be uppercased for you, such as VIN, state (province), and postal codes.

There are a few fields that will "learn" from your input and remember the information for future use. The Vehicle Body and Selling Dealer fields are examples of this.

If you do not know what a field is, hover the mouse over it and it will tell you at the bottom of the screen.
