#660 Sales Invoice silently changed on Post

Nick Prater

I have found that invoices are being silently altered when I hit 'Post', using ledgersmb 1.3.22. When a line's part number is edited, this change is lost.

Steps to replicate:

Go to Sales->Sales Invoice to enter a new invoice.
Enter a part number for Item 1
Click 'Update'
Note that the price, description and other details for line 1 are filled in
Change the part number for Item 1
Click 'Update'
Note that the new part number is correctly retained
Click 'Post'
Note that the part number has now reverted to its initial value - the change has been lost.

    Unfortunately there isn't a quick fix for this. The problem is that partnumber is not stored in the invoice or orderitems tables. i think if we want to change the behavior of always showing the internal part number here, that should be discussed on the email lists first so we can make sure we are all on board regarding the behavior.
