Sales Order Shipping in Sage 100

Sales Order provides a shipping entry system that warehouse personnel can use to quickly and accurately enter items to ship. The shipping entries are normally made after the order is entered but before it is invoiced. Entry is made using either the keyboard or a scanner and only the fields needed by the warehouse staff to pick and pack items for shipment are displayed. Shipping must be enabled in Sales Order Options BEFORE it can be used.

In addition to the features available in Shipping Data Entry, you can link to the power of a multi-carrier shipping program called StarShip developed by V-Technologies. This application automatically calculates freight for a variety of carriers such as United Parcel Service, the US Postal Service, and Federal Express. StarShip produces shipping labels and manifests and performs inquiries on shipments. In addition to Shipping Data Entry, you can access StarShip from Invoice Data Entry and Shipping History Inquiry if StarShip is installed. The StarShip Add-On is NOT taught in this class

Invoicing Shipping Entries

Accepting a shipping entry stores the document in the same files as Sales Order Invoice Entry. Security settings control how invoices from shipped orders are printed. Either it print with the shipping documents or someone needs to print them through one of the other available processes. Orders entered through Shipping Data Entry can be modified from the same entry window if necessary until updated. They can also be viewed and modified as needed through the Sales Order Invoice Entry window until updated.
