If your distribution business uses an integrated warehouse management system (WMS), splitting orders before they get to the WMS is a major help. Having Sage 300 split orders ensures efficient shipping. Here’s how to make Sage 300 Split Orders using a customization with Orchid Extender.
This example uses an integration between Sage 300 ERP and High Jump WMS.
Make Sage 300 Split Orders
In this demonstration, you’ll see how how to split a single order into multiple child orders. The split can happen based on numerous factors.
The splitting criteria are:
- A line with a different “Ship Via” method than the header
- A line with a different “Expected Ship Date” than the header
- A line with a different shipping location than the header
If there are variations in any of those factors, the order can be split. In our demonstration, we have Sage 300 split orders with a custom “Split” button. Additionally, all the data from the original order header is copied to the child orders. This even includes optional field values.
Using Orchid Extender allows us to add business rules to almost any Sage 300 screen. It is an incredibly powerful customization tool. Here’s the demonstration:
In this recording, we couple Orchid Extender with Orchid Notes. The Orchid Notes tool is the visual cue to the Sage 300 operator that the order has been split into multiples. Notes is a handy and high-value add-on to Sage 300 – see more on notes here.
