One of the ways to add a sales order line to a container would be directly from a sales order, and actually, you can also create a new container directly from a sales order. So let’s make a new sales order including a new container.
I will enter a customer number on the sales order.
Oops and pick whatever I want to ship different items that I’m adding on the order like this.
This is all of course standard functionality in Business Central.
Now, in the container code field, I could select an existing container if I want to add this to a container and in this overview, you can see that it only displays containers that are not completed. So my first container here is number three, whereas if I look at the container list, I also see the closed containers.
So either I select an existing container or I could create a new container directly from here and maybe I don’t know what the container is about right now. So I’ll just create it and then select it like this and of course, on the next sales line, the container exists and I’ll just have to select it.
And this way, I could continue to other sales orders, transfer orders, and select the same container code for those lines, and when I look in my container list, the outbound container list.
So you can see the sales orders that I’ve just added to the container in here. So this is one way of creating a new container and adding lines to it.
