Referenced Documents are All Around
This blog post is part of a series called “Tip of the Week”.
Transactions, records, steps in a process, activities, actions… doesn’t matter how you refer to it – it’s there, and if you run a business you know that keeping track is one of the keys to success. This is probably one of the reasons for investing in smart filing and searching methods…
Although SAP Business One supports various business processes and enables you to flexibly define yours, there are cases where you need to refer documents to one another even if they are not deriving from a defined flow. For that purpose you may use the “Referenced Documents” feature that is enhanced to support also Incoming and Outgoing Payments, Inventory Revaluation, Inventory Counting, and Inventory Posting:
As enabled in other documents, you can use this functionality to refer various documents and transactions including external documents to the given documents. If relevant, you can narrow down the variety of the available documents by selecting the option “Only Reference Business Partner on Main Document”.
Available in SAP Business One 10.0 FP 2008 and SAP Business One 10.0 FP 2008, version for SAP HANA.
