SUMMARY

This document describes the feature changes about multiple ship-to addresses and sales tax roll-down in Sales Order Processing in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

MORE INFORMATION

Changes have been made between version 6.0 and versions 7.5, 8.0, and 9.0 about multiple ship-to addresses and sales tax roll-down. Below are descriptions on how each version handles multiple ship-to addresses and sales tax roll-down.


Version 6.0


In version 6.0, only one ship-to address with associated tax schedule and shipping method information can be specified for an whole sales document. A change made to any one of the three fields in the Sales Customer Detail Entry window can be rolled down to all the line items on the document, resulting in recalculated taxes.


Version 7.0


In version 7.0, added functionality of multiple ship-to addresses per line item of a sales document caused a change in the roll-down feature. With this change, one ship-to address with associated tax schedule and shipping method information can be specified not only in the header, but also on each line of the sales document.


When entering new lines on a sales document the Ship to Address ID, Tax Schedule ID, and Shipping Method default from the Ship to Address ID specified in the Sales Customer Detail Entry window.


After line items have been entered, the change ofthe Address ID in the Sales Customer Detail Entry will prompt aroll-down to each line item that has the same Ship to Address ID assigned, resulting in aroll-down of the tax schedule ID and shipping method also. Change of only the Tax Schedule ID in the Sales Customer Detail Entry windowdoes not prompt to roll down to lines.


For example,assumea sales order is entered for a customer requesting that all items be shipped tothe CHICAGO Address ID. After the order has been saved, the customer calls back and requests a change of ship-to address to their NEW YORK address. Because the NEW YORK address ID is defined in the system, changing the Address ID in the header, prompts for a roll-down to all lines entered on the sales order.


On a newsales order for the same Chicago customer, the customer has requested a change of shipping address to oneof their salesrepresentatives, who is staying at a hotel in Dallas. Because this address is notdefined in the system,a different Address ID is not selectedin the header. The tax scheduleIDis changed to theDALLAS TaxSchedule. This change will not prompt a roll-down. To change the tax calculation, the Dallas Tax Schedule must be selected for each line item.


Versions 7.5, 8.0, and 9.0

Due to customer feedback on the 7.0 functionality, a change was made in how the system defaultsthe tax schedule on line items.

When entering the first line on a sales document the Ship to Address ID, Tax Schedule ID, and Shipping Method default from the Sales Customer Detail Entry window.Each additional line defaults with the information from the previous line.


For example, on a newsales order for the same Chicago customer who is mentioned earlier in this article, the customer has requested a change of shipping address to oneof their salesrepresentatives, who is staying at a hotel in Dallas. Because this address is notdefined in the system,a different Address ID is not selectedin the header. The tax scheduleIDis changed to theDALLAS TaxSchedule. This change will not prompt a roll-down, but it will default to the first line item entered, as long as there are no existing line items on the sales document.


Note A customization has been created for versions 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, and 9.0 to mimic the tax roll-down functionality of version 6.0. The customization assumes a single ship-to address for the whole document and a shipping method of delivery for all line items. For more information, contact Microsoft Business Solutions support.
