Adding The Customer Item Number Field To the SOP Quote, Order, Packing Slip or Invoice.


TechKnowledge Content


SUMMARY

I want to add the Customer Item Number field from Item Customer Maintenance (Cards | Inventory | Customers) to my Sales Order Processing Quotes, Orders and Invoices. If the Customer hasn't been assigned an Item, I would like the Item Number from the Sales Transaction Amounts Work table to print.
