Set user defined Shipment date on Delivery from Sales Order

By | April 26, 2014

Have you ever come across a situation in Sage X3 ERP where you set a future Shipment date on the Sales Order but when clicking/creating Delivery from the Sales Order, the Shipment date is automatically set to the current date irrespective of Shipment date set on the Sales Order?

Coming Soon:  GUMU™ for Sage CRM – Sage ERP X3 Integration ~ Real-time, Bi-directional

You can overcome this scenario with Parameter INISHIDAT under VEN Sales of the General parameters in Sage X3.

Setup > General parameters > Parameter values


Based on value set on the parameter ‘INISHIDAT’ the Shipment date is set accordingly on the Delivery made from the Sales Order.

By default the parameter value is set to “Current date” that means whenever a Delivery is made from a Sales Order the Shipment date will be always set to Current date irrespective of what is set in the ‘Shipment date’ field of the Sales Order.

When the parameter value is set to “Original document shipment date” then the Delivery made from the Sales Order has the user defined Shipment date.
