To install Order Entry, your system must include Accounts Receivable and Inventory Control. All other APPX applications are optional. Order Entry's operation is directly affected by the applications included in your system.
If your system includes the General Ledger application, the system validates account numbers during data entry.
Order Entry requires the Accounts Receivable application. Accounts receivable, deposit, sales tax, customer discount, and freight out accounts default from Accounts Receivable master files. Order Entry sales/accounts receivable entries and inventory/cost of goods sold entries are printed on the Accounts Receivable distribution reports. Selected options and entries made in Accounts Receivable directly affect the operation of the following Order Entry features: deposit processing, and calculation of sales taxes.
If, in the Parameters file, you select to post to Accounts Receivable from Order Entry, the On Order amount field in the Accounts Receivable Customer file is updated online during Sales Orders entry and Shipping Confirmation entry.
Order Entry requires the Inventory Control application. Inventory, sales, and cost of goods sold accounts default from Inventory Control master files. Costing of goods sold is based both on the costing method used in Inventory Control and on data contained in the Inventory Control files. In Order Entry, available quantities are displayed on-screen during data entry and on various reports. These quantities are derived from Inventory Control records. The drop shipment capability of Order Entry is derived from Inventory Control.
On hand and committed quantities in the Inventory Control Products by Warehouse file are updated online during Sales Orders entry and Shipping Confirmation Entry.
