Ordering an Existing Variant Item
If you find an existing variant item that exactly matches your specific configuration requirements, you can directly order the variant by clicking the Submit icon next to the variant item number. This closes the Questionnaire window and returns the variant item number to the item number field in the Sales Order Maintenance or Sales Quote Maintenance order line.
Existing variant items are configuration records that have variant item numbers and are marked with the F status.
Run SO/SQ Line Rules for Ordering Existing Variant Items
SO/SQ Line rule is executed both when creating a new variant item and ordering an existing variant item. Selecting an existing variant item sets default values for the line fields.
The following list describes the cases when the SQ/SO Line rule is executed:
• When the user clicks the “Order” icon on existing configuration lists
• When the user clicks the “Order” icon on the similar configuration lists
• When the user clicks the “Order” icon on the save variant item pop-up window
• When the program finds a matching variant item and selects it automatically, due to the auto-selection clause setting
Check and Recreate Price List for Ordering Existing Variant Items
If you order an existing variant item from Configurator, the system first checks whether there are any valid price lists. If there is none, Configurator creates a price list to make sure that the correct price is provided to the SO/SQ line.
To enable this function, set Create Price List in Configurable Item Maintenance to Yes.
