How to Make Invoice Number Field Editable for any Invoice?

By | August 5, 2016

In Sage X3, we may come across a scenario where we want to create invoice with any ID/number of our choice. By default, every time we create a new transaction, Sage X3 itself generates the next sequence number and assigns it to the newly created invoice.

To overcome this, kindly refer to the below steps

Step 1 : Navigate to: Setup > General Parameter > Sequence number definition > Assignment

Step 2 : Select the “Purchasing” module for purchase invoice (for sales invoice select ‘Sales’ module) with respective legislation. Set the manual entry value to “Yes”.
