Goods-Inwards Delivery Details Maintenance

Delivery Details are those details specific to Purchase Orders that give information to suppliers on delivery address and instructions. Many delivery sites can be accommodated. This is particularly useful when purchased parts and materials need to be sent directly to customers or sub-contractors. Care must be taken to ensure that correct stock transactions take place when the goods are delivered to external locations. The system assumes ALL ordered part items will be received into stock in the form they were ordered.

Delivery Details can be maintained using the File — System Manager — Delivery Details menu function.

A list of existing delivery details is provided in the top right corner.

To select a delivery detail record, click on the appropriate line on the list. To edit a record, double-click on the line. Existing codes can not be changed.

Both individual text and standard purchase text can be assigned to a delivery detail. If the small Show button is clicked, a list of standard purchase texts is presented as an aide-memoir. Double-clicking on a text in the list will apply it to the record during edit.
