Sales Order: Change Order Item Dates

Change Order Item Dates

Change Order Item Dates

This window is used by the Process — Sales Orders — Move Dispatch Dates and the Process — Purchase Orders — Move Delivery Dates menu functions. It enables you to select the options you want for order line item date changes. You can change Dispatch, Originally Required and Latest Expected dates using independently mechanisms but the Dispatch Date must always be set to change. An icon in the upper right for each date will indicate which dates will change.

You can make these changes for an entire order, for a specific part in all orders or for all items on order with a specific customer or supplier using the radio buttons. Having made a choice you must select the target SO, PO, Part, Customer or Supplier by clicking on the Select button. An appropriate selection dialogue will be presented. The result will be shown below the selection radio buttons.

You can move the line item dates by a number of days or to a specific date. If the Use Make (or Buy) calendar is checked, it will extend the delivery date by a number of working days rather than ordinary calendar days. Any date you enter will also be forced to be an active Make or Buy day.

The results on any changes can be printed if the Print results report checkbox is checked.
