List of Fields in the Table
The program uses the inbound purchase document header to store purchase header information that is used in purchase documents, which you receive electronically from various business partners. This header information is used in several documents, such as BizTalk purchase quotes, BizTalk purchase invoices, BizTalk purchase receipts, BizTalk purchase order confirmations and BizTalk purchase credit memos.
Thus, the inbound purchase document header is used as a read-only viewer where you can view general data on inbound BizTalk purchase documents. The inbound purchase documents that are stored here are either pending, accepted, rejected or processing.
A purchase document is inbound if it is sent to you from one of your business partners.
The inbound purchase document header contains all the relevant information about the buy-from and pay-to vendors, such as name, address, document number and date. It has four tabs: General, Invoicing, Shipping, and BizTalk. These tabs contain information about the buy-from vendor, pay-to vendor, shipments and relevant BizTalk details. The program retrieves most of this information automatically from the Vendor table when the Buy-from Vendor No. and Pay-to Vendor No. fields are filled in.
The inbound purchase document header is related to a number of lines in the Inbound Purchase Document Line table containing information (such as item number, quantity and price) about the items you want to buy. Amounts on the inbound purchase document lines are in the source currency unless the field name indicates that the amount is in dollars. The source currency is the currency represented by the currency code on the inbound purchase document header.
When a BizTalk purchase document is accepted (either automatically or by the user) and subsequently converted into a Navision purchase document, information that is contained in the inbound purchase document header is stored in the Navision Purchase Header table. Information that is contained in the Inbound Purchase Document Line table is stored in the Navision Purchase Line table. The inbound purchase document header and the inbound purchase document lines are related in the same way as Navision purchase header and purchase lines are related.
The inbound purchase document header is read-only. This means that it is not possible to change or enter anything in the inbound purchase document header. If you need to make any changes to this table, you must make them after the BizTalk purchase document is transformed into a Navision purchase document.
This is also why there is no Help for most of the fields in the Inbound Purchase Document Header table. If you need Help or information about any of the fields in this table without Help, see the Help for the corresponding field in the Purchase Header table.
