INVOICE ITEM NUMBERS

Im wanting to know if there is any way of making the item field longer so the whole item number can been seen on the invoice. Its very frustrating when suppliers use a long number and a lot of them start with the same few numbers and the only defining numers cant be seen. Any help would be great Cheers

Re: INVOICE ITEM NUMBERS

Hi @tinabate 

 

The Item number field is limited to 30 characters. This is not able to be increased. 

 

However, in saying that, depending on the need you could look at updating the customise form to include the Item Description field. By adding that field, when you produce the invoice you can pull the Description that is listed in the Item's Item Details field, which can contain up to 255 characters.

 

If you are looking at completing that process, you can edit your customise forms using the following process:

  1. Navigating to Setup>>Customise Forms
  2. Choosing Invoices>>Items
  3. Choosing the desired customise form
  4. Selecting Save
  5. Once in the Customise Forms window, right-click on the Invoice Table
  6. Choose Show/Hide Columns from the pop-up menu
  7. Choose the desired field you wish to add i.e. Item Description (potentially hide the Item Code)
  8. Select OK
  9. Drag (Move) the column to the desired location
  10. Save the form

Note: You would need to ensure that you have added the relevant information to the Description field in the Item's Item Details tab.

 

Using the above process would populate what you have entered into that Description field on the printed/emailed copy of the invoice. You would still need to select the item by that Item's number listed in the Profile of that item.

Kind regards,
Steven
