    Force finder to apply supplier code filtering during purchse

    by NormistTech » Thu Mar 20, 2008 4:41 pm

    Hi,

    We have several kinder kids :D who work for us, and we need to force the finder to apply the supplier's code to supplier when adding stock to the manual purchase order.

    :?: Is there a hook we can use to force this.

    Problem, some staff are ordering parts from the wrong supplier. they raise the purchase order for supplier A, and then add parts that are only provided by supplier B. :roll:

    Thanks

    I don't believe there is a hook to control what items are listed in the finder (with the exception of restricting access to stock subject to the user's departmental code), but you could confirm if an item was acceptable or not as soon as it was pasted into a transaction such as a purchase order.

    This would most easily be done with the new R-xxPOST.MAC script hook series found in CAPITAL 7.51 and above.

    How do you determine whether an item is available from a single supplier only?

    Thanks,
    will look at docs on R-xxPOST.MAC.

    The process is quite simple, the only supplier they should be allowed to use is that supplier that is listed in the supplier field in the stock file.
    however, if you create a manual purchase order, you are able to select any product in the stock file. A manual selection of supplier code in the supplier of the finder will only list parts from that supplier, hence the idea of forcing the entry of supplier code into the supplier field of the finder.
    The issue is not relevant for automated purchase order as this already restricts the part to supplier listed in the stock file.
