Creation of Intercompany Purchase order for a project item requirement

Business requirement: creation of Intercompany Purchase order for a project item requirement

Upon creating an Intercompany Purchase Order based on a project item requirement, the Purchase Order is of type Journal and is uneditable. Hence the Intercompany Sales Order isn’t created neither in the vendor company account and it can’t be created neither as the Intercompany Purchase Order is uneditable.

This behaviour can be easily simulated on the demo data:

  1. Create an item requirement on a project.
  2. Click Functions > Create purchase order.
  3. Select the Include check box in the line for the project item requirement and verify that vendor 9100 is selected in the Vendor field.

Solution: Adapt class SalesTableType

A small X++ code fix can solve this problem in class SalesTableType, method syncPurchTable.

if (_salesTable.fieldChanged(fieldnum(SalesTable, SalesType))) 
{
    switch(salesTable.SalesType)
    {

        case SalesType::Subscription    :  
axPurchTable.parmPurchaseType(
PurchaseType::Subscription);
break;

        case SalesType::Sales           :  
axPurchTable.parmPurchaseType(
PurchaseType::Purch);       
break;

        case SalesType::ReturnItem      :  
axPurchTable.parmPurchaseType(
PurchaseType::ReturnItem);  
break;

        case SalesType::Blanket         :  
axPurchTable.parmPurchaseType(
PurchaseType::Blanket);     
break;

        // BEGIN: intercompany chain for item requirements
        case SalesType::ItemReq         :  
axPurchTable.parmPurchaseType(
PurchaseType::Purch);       
break;
        // END: intercompany chain for item requirements


        default :
axPurchTable.parmPurchaseType(
PurchaseType::Journal);

    }
}


Upon creating an Intercompany Purchase Order, it won’t be of type Journal anymore and the Intercompany Sales Order in the vendor company account will be created automatically too.
