This year we learned in an extreme manner, how dynamic our world is and how important it is to adjust quickly to the new reality. If you run a business, you already know that flexibility and the ability to react to changing circumstances are key for continuous success. Let’s take for example this big customer of yours with the multiple sites – deliveries are sent to the different sites but they are all consolidated into invoices that are posted to the headquarters. But what if, for once, you have to create the invoice of a certain delivery to the site itself and not to the main office? or you want to modify the consolidating Business Partner. Well, you can! Although the consolidation type and business partner are defined in the Business Partner Master Data, SAP Business One enables you to update these details in the document level as well:
The consolidation information in the delivery is taken from the Business Partner Master Data. You can change it before adding the document. When you copy the delivery to target document the consolidation data will be taken from the delivery and not from the Business Partner Master Data.
