  • 2)Create and fill in a purchase order for the item

  2. Press F3, and then press Enter to create a new order with a new document number.
  3. In the Buy-from Vendor No. field, select the vendor that will ship the item, and then click OK.

  5. Click Order, Drop Shipment, Get Sales Order. The Order – Sales List window appears.
    Select the sales order that you will use to create the purchase order, and then click OK to create the purchase order.

Note
The sales order line on the sales order must have a purchasing code of Drop Shipment.
If item tracking was assigned on the corresponding sales order, the Get Sales Order function will also copy the item tracking lines to the newly-created purchase order. You can view them under Line, Item Tracking Lines.
You cannot post a drop shipment order that has item tracking unless item tracking is synchronized – serial numbers and lot numbers must be the same – between the two related orders.

  • 3)Receiving & Invoicing against the Drop Shipment
  1. After you have released the purchase order, you must wait until the vendor informs you that the items have been shipped to the customer. You can then post the sales order. On the Sales Order window, click Posting, Post. Then select either Ship (to invoice it later) or Ship and Invoice (to invoice it immediately).
  2. After you have posted the sales order as shipped, you can also post the purchase order as received. If the sales order has been invoiced, you can also invoice the purchase order.

Note:
You cannot post the sales order until it has been linked to a purchase order.
You can post the purchase order immediately or at a later date. When posting, you can only select Receive, because the linked sales order must be invoiced before you can invoice the purchase order.
If item tracking was assigned on the corresponding sales order, the Get Sales Order function will also copy the item tracking lines to the newly-created purchase order. You can view them under Line, Item Tracking Lines.
You cannot post a drop shipment order that has item tracking unless item tracking is synchronized – serial numbers and lot numbers must be the same – between the two related orders.
