How to add Sales Invoice elements in X3?

By | March 20, 2014

Sales invoice is a bill issued by the seller and is proof the selling process has already happened.

The setup of the invoice footers is used to define the numbered codes which are calculated upon valuation of the invoice footer. Based on the setup, this valuation can be performed starting from:

  1. The value defined when setting up the invoicing element
  2. The information entered (or initialized) on the impacted customer record

Also, this function comes first first in the customer price list setup cycle. Use this function to create or modify the invoicing elements in order to determine how to structure and calculate the invoice footers that these invoicing elements represent. 

You may have come across a situation where you would like to add elements in like discounts, freight charges, etc. in the invoices which have been generated. Sage X3 has a feature to add different invoicing elements like Discount %, Discount $, Freight etc. The maximum number of invoicing elements that can be created is defined in the Folder setup.
