Sales Returns - Detail tab

Page approved.



For the Other Action Menu options (press F9 or the Other Actions Menu on the Button Bar) see Sales Returns - Other Actions menu.

The [ Sales Returns | Detail ] tab is where returns are created and processed. It consists of four sub-tabs and two grids:

Notes:

  1. Before processing any returns the Return Reasons must be setup in [ System Data | Sales Order Processing | Return Reasons ], see How To: Configure Return Reasons.
  2. If a return is created for an item on a sales order that has a Keycode attached, the Keycode will be copied onto both the Credit Note and the Return Exchange.
  3. To preserve the original sell price and discounts for direct exchanges the sales order items must be moved from the upper grid to the lower grid using the direct exchange button the MOVE ROW DOWN button shows a green arrow pointing downwards.   .
  4. Discounts in a Sales Order, which are displayed in the DiscH£(N) or DiscH£(G) columns, will be carried onto any Return that is generated. Any items going back out on the Exchange Note will proportion the discount value.
  5. When processing a return, the returned item will always be added to your stock file using the stock value for the item at the time the return is processed. So if the stock value of an item has increased or decreased since it was sold, it is the new value that will be used for the returned item, as you can't have two different stock values recorded against the same stock item.
