Click product receipt journal

Step 4: Check Sale order Line status

USMF/Project management and accounting/Common/Projects/All projects

Select project 000282

Plan tab >Item requirements

 

Select Show All and Inquiries >Sales order

 

Step 5: Check Line status of the Sales order

 

*** Actual Result ***

We see that the line status of the Sales is “open order” which is correct as we had not consumed the inventory purchased automatically

*** Expected Result ***

Same as actual

 

Step 6: Make a picking list and packing slip from Item requirements form for consuming quantity

Click Posting>picking list

Click Ok

Click posting>Picking list registration

 

Updates>update All

Click close

Click Posting >packing slip

Update Quantity as Picked

Click Ok

 

Step7 : Check project posted transactions

USMF/Project management and accounting/Common/Projects/All projects

Select project 000282

 

Action Pane>manage tab

Click Related information>Posted transactions

 

 

We see that the project posted transactions are getting populate on Packing slip posting itself if we use Item requirements which is correct

 

Step 8: Check Sale order Line status

USMF/Project management and accounting/Common/Projects/All projects

Select project 000282

Plan tab >Item requirements

 

Select Show All and Inquiries >Sales order

 

Step 9: Check Line status of the Sales order

 

*** Actual Result ***

We see that the line status of the Sales is “Invoiced ” which is correct as we had made a complete consumption (full 10 quantity)

 

 

 

That’s because for Item requirements, Item transactions are consumed when the packing slip is updated.

 

Reference 1:https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh500664.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

 

Although a sales order is processed when the corresponding customer invoice is updated, item requirements are processed when the corresponding packing slip is updated.

Reference 2: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa571173.aspx

NOTE: Sales order line status is Invoiced as it was invoiced as part of the Item requirement (which is Invoiced after posting the Packing slip)
