Print From Current / Print From History
Print From Current: Select this option to print packing slips from current unposted invoice batches.
Print From History: Select this option to print packing slips from the history file.
Sort By Customer
Select this option to sort the packing slips by customer, or leave this box unchecked to sort by invoice number.
Assign Starting Invoice Number / First Invoice #
If you selected On-Line Invoice Numbering on the Defaults tab of the Sales Point of Sale Preferences window, this option is not available. To assign invoice numbers sequentially, beginning with a number of your choice, select the check box and enter a number in the First Invoice # field. This is the best way to assign invoice numbers if you are using pre-numbered invoice forms. If you decide not to use this method, you must assign the invoice numbers as the invoices are entered.
Print Location
Select this check box to include the location for each stock item on the packing slips.
Start and End Ranges: Customer Number and Invoice Number
The Start and End boxes allow you to define the range of items to include on the report. You can include a single item by entering the same value in both boxes. These default settings include all items that meet the remaining criteria set in the window. Type in the fields or use the Lookup to make your selections.
Test Print
We recommend that you test print these slips on blank paper before you load your packing slips. Select this button to test print the packing slips. This button is unavailable if you checked the Use a custom report check box.
Use a custom report
This check box is only available if you defined a custom report for this window in Controller. Select this check box if you want to run a custom report instead of the default report. The drop-down is enabled after you select the check box and you can choose the custom report you want to run.
