Using measurement calculations during entries


When entering (direct) invoices, sales orders, service orders, RMA orders, fulfilments, quotations, purchase orders, RTV orders, receipts, purchase returns, production issue, production receipts, production orders, Bills of materials (BOMs), internal use, counts, and interbranch transfers, a check would be made at the Quantity field for the presence of measurement calculations linked to the chosen item. In addition to linking the measurement calculation to the item, it must also be stated when maintaining the measurement calculation data for the items, that the measurement calculation for that item also applies to the relevant transaction category.

For example, if it is indicated that the measurement calculation for that item only applies to the Sales orders category, then the measurement calculation screen will not be displayed when entering an order. The measurement calculation screen is also shown when maintaining a bill of materials.

The following must be taken into account when importing:

  • The text shown in the screen is determined by the value at the Label field in the linked formula.

  • If no value is entered for the formula at the Label field, it will not be displayed in the screen during entry.

  • If a label cannot be edited, the field in the screen will be grayed out. The user cannot change the value (for example, the specific weight field will always be the same for an item).

  • The value at a field is multiplied by, divided by, added to, or subtracted from (depending on the operator) the value from the following line.

  • An additional comment field of 100 characters is included in the entry screen.

The calculated number is the number calculated based on the entered values and the operators. The calculated quantity will be automatically filled at the default field Quantity (in the order line) when OK is clicked.

The data of a measurement calculation can be printed on documents such as order confirmations, delivery notes, and invoices. During the printing of the document, the values of all Label fields, the descriptions of the labels, and the free fields are copied into the lines. It is also possible to print the extra fields from the order lines and invoice lines on the relevant layouts.
