Sage Query

JanJan Experienced MentorRegistered Posts: 654
I want to use the Ex Ref when entering Purchase Invoices. I've done a couple as a test run, but can't see that part when I look on a suppliers activity or when I run a report, which rather defeats the object! Anybody any ideas? Using Sage 50 FC version 13

Many thanks

    Hi Jan
    I've had a quick look and cannot find a report which shows 'Ex Ref'.
    A bit bizarre really- why have it??:001_unsure:
    Sorry can't be of more help.

    Hi Jan

    As you have found out this cell does not come up on aged crditors etc.

    I use 'Ref' for the supplier invoice number and I have used the 'Ex Ref' cell in the past to register job numbers and/or p/o numbers for suplier invoices, when not using the products or projects module.

    But I then had to design a new report to bring in this information

    I had the same problem - you have to edit the report you want and then it's fairly straightforward to add in this extra field. I use it as my invoice ref and have amended the supplier day books report to show it.

    Thanks Poodle, that's just what I want to do, although I was hoping to be able to see what I wanted without having to run a report - v13 is so slow at that.

    I've also noticed statements coming through that quote our ref and your ref so I presume that the statement has been edited a similar way.

    Hey Whiterose - great part on the country you come from :thumbup:

    One can see it but you just have to open the little square to left when you run the activity

    Thanks KOM, in v13 you have to click on "Show Details" and it does just that!
