Specifies the number of the sales document. The field can be filled automatically or manually and can be set up to be invisible.
The No. field can be filled in three ways:
If only one number series for the type of sales document exists where the Default Nos. field is selected and the Manual Nos. field is not selected, then the field is automatically filled with the next number in the series, and the No. field will not be visible on the sales document.
Note If the number series does not function, for example because it has run out of numbers, then the No. field will be visible and you can manually enter a number or resolve the issues in the No. Series List window.
If more than one number series for the type of sales document exist, and the Default Nos. field is not selected for the number series that is currently assigned, choose the No. field. In the No. Series List window, select the number series you want to use, and then choose OK. The next number in the series is inserted in the No. field.
If you have not set up a number series for the type of sales document, or if the Manual Nos. field is selected for the number series, you can enter a number manually. You can enter a maximum of 20 characters, both numbers and letters.
When you open a new sales document for which no number series exists, the Sales No. Series Setup window opens so that you can set up a number series for that type of sales document before you proceed to fill the new sales document. For more information, see Sales No. Series Setup.
