So I have my sales order here, with the two sales lines that I want to get sent directly to my customer from my supply company, and to pick locations for this to get sent from, and I now go into the sales line.

This is what happens in the video

Click on line, item availability by intercompany, and what I see here is the projected inventory from my Supply Company.

Can see I have my intercompany partner, the available locations that the supply company has set up for me to allow me to pick from, and I can see here, what is at the projected inventory.

What is the remaining quantity, this is what is actually on stock at the moment.

The gross requirement is what other requirements there are in the supply company right now, that could be other sales orders.

The scheduled receipt is whatever is planned for me to get on stock in my supply company that could be production orders or purchase orders. And the projected inventory is when you pull all this together we can see what is actually available.

So we can see here that both from the location available, and location basic I have something to pick from. So let’s just choose the first one here, click okay. And you can see now here on my buy from vendor location code is now putting the location.

Let’s on the next line, do the same. We can see here, there’s another projected inventory. Let’s just for the example pick another location.

So what we see now here, is that I want to get these two items sent from two different locations at my Supply Company.
