Updating Base Document detals after creation

I am trying to "join" a delivery with the corresponding order, with the order being captured after the order. Using the DI API I am able to update the Price of the delivery to the order price, but I get an error ("Item no. is missing [ODLN.ObjType]") when trying to update the base document details.

I know that updating an delivery after the order is captured is not standard, but I am hoping that someone has an idea....?

    Hi Jarno,

    If you want to create a document based on an existing one, you have to indicate per line the base type.

    In this example i'm creating an invoice (the order was just created before)

    ' Now add the invoice

    Dim strObjKey As String

    oInvoice = oCompany.GetBusinessObject(SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oInvoices)

    strObjKey = oCompany.GetNewObjectKey()



    oInvoice.CardCode = oDocument.CardCode

    Dim lint As Integer

    For lint = 0 To oDocument.Lines.Count - 1

    If lint > 0 Then oDocument.Lines.Add()

    oInvoice.Lines.BaseEntry = strObjCode

    oInvoice.Lines.BaseLine = lint

    oInvoice.Lines.BaseType = SAPbobsCOM.BoObjectTypes.oOrders


    lRetCode = oInvoice.Add

    We deliver an example in the SDK under "C:\Program Files\SAP Manage\SAP Business One SDK\Samples\COM DI\VB.NET\05.OrderAndInvoice" you can refer to it for further info.

    Best regards,

      SDK does not do what SAP B1 does not. I don't see a feature in B1 that lets you create a Base document from a target!!!

      does not make sense to me (or may be I don't understand your question.)

      can you explain the circumstances that compels you to do a base doc after the target has been created?

    Hello all,

    I had a similar problem. I look at this posting and was able to find out more information on my problem. My outcome seem to be that we can't add a line until we have multiple line.
