Sorry if I'm being silly here.
When I create Shipments from my orders (Create
Shipments Manual) then the column "Order" in Shipments
is populated with a string that contains the original
order's DocumentNo. That's fine.
When I am looking at that same order in SalesOrder
screen, and from the menu, pick View Shipments, then I
get a list of the shipments for this BPartner. There's
a helpful looking column called "Order Reference".
But "Order Reference" is not automatically populated,
so in my case it is blank, and "Order" column is not
visible. For BPartners with more than one order (and we
all like that kind of BPartner best) this is not great
for customer service staff. Essentially, they don't
seem to be able to see which order that Shipment came
thx in advance
