Pass selection to window immediately

Check to cause the selection to be immediately reflected on the target window. This option is not present on all uses of this window.

Explode Kit Items

Check to show kit items exploded in the document. This option is not present on all uses of this window.

List Selection Options

Choose a selection for the listing.

Tip TIP: Normally, when the same part is applied to consecutive line items any part extra texts (individual or standard) are suppressed so the first line only contains them. This is to reduce unnecessary duplication. However, this normal behaviour can be prevented with the user Option optSOPartTextDupl set to 1. Extra texts are then repetitively printed. If this option is set the effect will apply to all customer documents including Sales Orders, Jobs and Invoices.
