SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario in Microsoft Dynamics AX 4.0. In the Accounts receivable parameters dialog box, you click Both or click Packing slip update in the Shipping specification list on the Shipments tab. Then, you create a sales order. Next, you open the Post packing slip dialog box, and then you try to create a shipment line in the Post packing slip dialog box. In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
Field 'Sales order' must be filled in.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the salesID field is not initialized when you create a new SalesShippingStat line if the Mandatory property of the salesID field is Yes.
