A Method for Writing Invoices From Backorders Without Re-entry
A method is described to prevent the re-entry of data for an invoice when a
product that was backordered is either totally or partially filled.
In accordance with the new method, an option from the menu is provided to
create an invoice for a product that had previously been backordered. The steps
involved are: 1. The user identifies the reference number to use. 2. The
system provides the header information and asks if this is correct. If correct,
each item is displayed. 3. As an item is displayed, the question is asked, was
this one received. If the answer is yes, 4. The quantity received is asked for.
Part of the order can be filled. 5. The amount entered is deducted for that part
number from the onhand amount and the backorder (if totally filled) is marked
complete. An invoice entry is made in the invoice file for the entry and all of the
appropriate information is automatically carried over to the entry. If part of the
order remains on backorder, a backorder record with the new quantity is
displayed. 6. The next item on backorder is shown and the user is asked to
identify whether it was received, etc. (this continues until no more items exist
under that backorder number).
