On the Voluntary Petition, Nature of Debt (on page 1), I enter a client as "business". Why can't I select choices 16-25 on the Statement of Financial Affairs?

First, Go to the Attorney/Client screen.

Finally, be sure that the box to the left of this option has been checked. This is what determines the selectable questions on the Statement of Financial Affairs form.

I have input my information for Schedules A, B, and C into the data entry screen, but when I print out the form, the information is not there.
Make sure that after you input your first piece of information, you press the plus button on the navigator
Secondly, only input one entry for each piece of property the client has. Schedule C is generated automatically by Blankrupter
If you have no pieces of property for a given category (i.e. Category 1, Cash on Hand), Blankrupter will automatically mark the "None" column
To delete an incorrect entry, click the minus sign on the navigator
After inputting your last piece of property, click the Check mark, not the plus. This is the only time you need to click the check mark

How do I move from schedule to schedule (or page to page) under Property (A, B, C) and Creditors/Co-debtors (D, E, F, H)?

Click on View (top left of the menu bar). Clicking on the various options under View will allow you to move easily from schedule to schedule.
