    Hi,

    How does the shipment and invoice automatic generation work?

    If I choose a Sales Order of type Standard Order, am I supposed to be able to create the shipment and customer invoice when I click on the post Order button?

    I would like to know the differences of the Document Type regarding the shipment and invoice generation. Is there a documentation on this? Thanks for your help.

      You can create shipment and invoice even without posting it in the sales order window. Just by completing it is good enough.

      Regarding the documentation, you will have to be a partner to download it. Another way is to purchase it from the compiere website.

        What does the post Order button actually do? I tried using the post button for a Sales Order of SO type, and the system created the supplier invoice. Does it suppose to create customer invoice instead of supplier invoice? Would you explain this to me? Thanks.

          The post button simply creates accounting entries inside fact details.

          You can create a customer invoice automatically from a purchase order by generate invoices (manual) window.
