List of Fields in the Table
The program uses the outbound purchase document header to store purchase document header information that you used in purchase documents which you send electronically to various business partners. This header information is used in two documents: the BizTalk request for purchase quote and the BizTalk purchase order.
Thus, the outbound purchase document header is used as a read-only viewer where you can send and view general data on outbound BizTalk purchase documents. The outbound purchase documents that are stored here are either unsent, sent or processing.
A purchase document is outbound if it is sent from you to one of your business partners.
The outbound 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 outbound purchase document header is related to a number of lines in the Outbound Purch. Document Line table containing information (such as item number, quantity and price) about the items you want to buy. Amounts on the outbound 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 outbound purchase document header.
When sending and subsequently converting a Navision purchase document into a BizTalk purchase document, information that is contained in the Navision Purchase Header table is stored in the outbound purchase document header. Information that is contained in the Navision Purchase Line table is stored in the Outbound Purch. Document Line table. The outbound purchase document header and the outbound purchase document lines are related to each other in the same way as Navision purchase header and purchase lines are related.
The outbound purchase document header is read-only. This means that it is not possible to change or enter anything in the outbound purchase document header. If you want to make any changes to this table, you must make them before the Navision purchase documents are transformed into BizTalk purchase documents.
This is also why there is no Help for most of the fields in the Outbound 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.
