    hi!

    i am customizing the print format of sales invoices.
    I want to add the business partner contacts' name and phone number to the invoices.

    How can i do that?

    Thanks in advance.

      i forgot to mention that these 2 fields are not available in the sort order tab in the print format window so i guess i'll have to mess around with the application dictionary?

      Hi Alberto,

      Try to search them in "Display Order" tab.

      BP contact name is already in the list with displaied.

      You need to add Phone.
      Currently it is not displaied.

      Regards,
      Trifon

      Hi trifon,

      thanks for answering.

      In the BP window, contact tab, i have filled out the name and phone fields for the customer.
      In the dosplay order tab for the print format i have included the "contact name" field but nothing is displayed when i print the invoice.

      Do you have a clue about what i might be doing wrong? I am using 253a.

      Hi Alberto,

      Do you have Contact field filled in your invoice?

      I managed to get what you want:

      hi trifon,

      Yes that looks like what i am looking for.

      I have filled the fields "name" and "phone" in the "contact (user)" tab in the BP window.
      When i create a new invoice it only lets me choose "clientAdmin" or "blank" in the "user/contact" selectbox, so i left it blank. That's probably why it does not appear in the printed document even if i include it in the print format.

      Do you know what i have to do so it let's me choose the BP's contact for the invoice? BTW, how did you add the contact phone to the print format?

      My idea was that the administration guys just select the BP to invoice and the contact name and phone number would automatically be included taking those fields from the BP data.

      Thanks,
      alberto.
