Hi All,

is there any way to make the sales or service order number available in the OWL for the invoice requests?

As there is no functionality to automatically have services and material delivery in the same invoice request one should know which of the request belong the same sales order. Customers do not wish to create more than one invoice per sales order if it is not really needed.

Hello Klaus,

The referenced sales order or service order ID and line ID is visible in the item details in OWL. If you select one invoice request, in the below items table, you could see the reference order/line information. However, it is not possible to display it in header level as one invoice request could be created by multiple orders.

User may use the advance search to select invoice request from particular reference(base) document.

Hi Adie,

yes, I know that. But for quickly selecting the right invoice requests to the same sales order one has to scroll thru all entries (and that may be a large number). It would be easier to see the order number directly in the OWL and make it sortable.

Customers may have a large number(approx. 100 invoice request/day). And the one creating the invoices does not know, if there is more than one request for an order.

Hi Klaus,

If use the PDI develope, it can do it as what you said.

I had done some simple test, it needs two step:

1. add an extension field "salesorderID" in the BO.

2. create some script to set the salesorderID.

My job is do the remote development for life. My email:
Thanks for your understanding.

Best Regards,
Benny Huang
