When filling in an ASN, quantities should source from the PO in the Qty Shipped field, then we could modify if needed instead of having to manually enter each quantity shipped.

Good afternoon Marie,

Thank you for posting!  I am going to respond to this in a couple ways.  First - I really appreciate the idea!  The reason we do not currently source the Shipped Quantity into the Quantity Per Carton field is that the "Check" function as well as the "Send" function would not recognize this field as needing manual attention.  While it is possible that these fields are the same, it is also possible that they are not.  Without calling attention to the Quantity Per Carton field, it is felt it would result in an increase of incorrect information sent. 

With that being said, we can work to work around this for your particular scenario.  If you receive POs with any consistency in the Shipped Quantity, this workaround may work well for you.  In the example below, I have assumed that you always receive Shipped Quantities in multiples of six.  You will want to go to your Defaults for the the ASN.  From here, find the Qty Per Carton field.  Next, select Setup Lookups, and add lines.  In the below example, it is saying that when the Shipped Qty is 6, the Qty Per Carton is 6.  When the Shipped Qty is 12, the Qty Per Carton is 12 (and so on).



Please let me know if you have any questions!

Jordan
