The following features expand standard Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central functionality to provide additional options to those working in your organization’s sales department.

Check external document#

This function enhancement checks when a sales document (order, sales return, invoice and credit memo) is released whether the external document number is entered in the field of the same name and whether it is already used in other documents.

To do this, the "Check external document" switch must be activated in the Accounts Receivable & Sales setup.


If the switch is activated in the Accounts Receivable & Sales Setup, a release and posting of the document is only possible by entering a unique external document number.
