How to Create Manual Transaction Number for Purchase Order and Purchase Receipt?

By | August 6, 2016

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

But, it is difficult to remember this auto generated numbers. To overcome this, Sage X3 provides the facility to create your own transaction ids.

To achieve this, we have to do following setup:

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

Step 2 : Select the record having module as “Purchasing” and appropriate legislation.

Step 3 : Set the manual entry value to “Yes”.

(Refer the below screenshot where the manual entry for document types  “Standard order”  and “Receipt” is set to “Yes”.)

Hope this helps.
