Introduction

The purpose of this product is to give the user the possibility to modify certain fields in the posted purchase and sales documents. The fields that can be modified will be descriptive fields, which can help users to describe the operation performed deeper, change customer or vendor address data… Is not allowed to change fields than could modify ledger entries, VAT entries, customer or vendor entries…, as well as quantities and amounts or products invoiced or paid.

User will be able to change invoice or credit memo vendor no. and the posting description in purchase transactions; and the external document no. and posting description in sales transactions. Updating these fields will change ledger entries, VAT entries, and customer/vendor ledger entries, but affecting only descriptive fields and used in searches.
.

Setting Up

Several previous configurations are required for the proper operation of the product.

A new field has been added in the user setup to indicate which user has permissions to modify the posted documents. If the user does not have this field checked, they will be shown an error when they try to access the modification screen.

To do that:

1. In the “Tell me what you want to do” search for “User Setup”.

2. Select the user you want to give permission to edit posted documents and check the field “Posted Docs. Edit Permission”.

Changes in posted documents

The process of changing posted documents is very similar for all 4 cases (purchase invoice and credit memo and sales invoice and credit memo).

A new option has been added in the posted document cards that will show the user a screen to edit certain data.

The following data will be displayed on this screen:

  • In the “Invoice / Credit Memo” tab, the document number and registration date will be displayed, both data will not be editable
  • The “General” tab will show:
    • Language code: this data may be interesting in case any customer has a development that shows the texts on the invoice / credit memo printed in the language indicated in the document.
    • Vendor / customer document no. and posting description: if user changes either of these two data changes will also be done in vendor / customer entries, ledger entries and VAT entries in external document no. and description (sometimes, once the user has posted the document is needed to identify clearly the entries and the description or external document no. is a way to do that)
  • In the “Lines” option you can change the description of the selected line. In addition, comment lines can be added. These lines can be deleted, but never the originals. This option may be interesting to add comment lines that will be displayed on the printed invoice/credit memo
  • In the “Buy to / Sell to” tab you can change the name and address data of the vendor or customer
