Assign Picking Location Dialog

The Assign Picking Location dialog is used to select a location that an item is being picked from. It will affect the following areas of the system:

  • Manual picking within the Sales Invoice.
  • Location select for Supplier Returns, known here as the Select source locations for items dialog.


  1. When using warehouse control all sales orders must have a picking ticket generated for them. If a sales order is issued and a picking ticket hasn't been generated then the following error message will be displayed "You haven't picked this item/order from a location, please pick the order and try again" and the user will have to create a pick ticket using the the 'Order Stage Reports' button is found towards the top left of the Sales Invoice manager screen.
  2. The batch column is only visible if batch control has been enabled.

The Assign Picking Location dialog consists of the:

  • The details area at the top.
  • The upper stock grid
  • The lower locations grid.

Details Area

  • Doc Code: the sales order invoice code or supplier return code.
    Note: if the sales invoice has not been generated or printed it will display ???.
  • Doc Date: for sales orders this is the delivery date for supplier returns it is the date the supplier return was created.
  • Total Qty: the total number of items on the order or supplier return.
  • URN: the customer or supplier's URN.

Stock Grid

Batches Grid

Note: If using batches, then a batches grid will appear on the right with the following column headings:

Locations Grid

  • Location: the list of all Stock Warehouse Location Codes for the stock item the user is currently focused on in the top grid. This code will populate the Location column on the pick ticket.
