Maintaining Variant Sales Order Line Rules
Use Variant SO Line Rule Maintenance to define assignment rules for a configurable item to assign values to sales order details fields of newly created variant item records.
Note: Make sure that data are valid for the correct business logic in Sales Order Maintenance. You can only assign values to those sales order details fields that do not have default values or calculation logic, such as sod_qty_ord. If you use assignment rules fields such as sod_site and sod_price, QAD EA business logic overwrites them.
To define a sales order line rule:
1 Specify a configurable item in the Configurable Item field.
2 Specify a sales order details field with a sod prefix in the Field field.
3 Compose the assignment rule with the assistance of the Rule Assistant. See Using the Rule Assistant.
4 Click Check Syntax to validate the rule syntax. If syntax errors are found, error messages display and the status becomes Failed.
