Posting packing slip form

The Posting packing slip form is used to post a packing slip document and register items as being received from the supplier. A packing slip document is a guarantee that the company has received items. And, items become the company’s property.

The following are the results of a packing slip posting:

  • Packing slip document is printed
  • Receipt type in the inventory transaction is updated from Registered to Received
  • General ledger accounts are posted (depending on the setup)
  • The purchase order status is changed to Received (if all purchase order quantities are posted)
