Using Print Messages Throughout the Sales Order Process

Using Print Messages Throughout the Sales Order Process

Concept

You attach print messages to appear on:

• A sales order header for an individual sales order.

• An individual detail record.

• All documents for a specific customer.

 

You attach print messages that are not predefined to sales orders at either the sales order header or sales order detail level.

 

If a message exists in a master record, such as the customer master, the print message appears by default in the sales order header, detail lines, or both. You can override the message or add a new one.

 

You can also enter free-form text to a sales order using a line type of T. The system prints the free-form text just like a regular line item on documents.

 

You attach a predefined print message to pick slips and invoices by defining the message in the processing options of the programs. You use the Global Print Message processing option for the predefined messages on pick slips and invoices. You can also use the Print Additional Header Text processing option to print the word ORIGINAL or REPRINT in the header of a pick slip or an invoice.
