When you associate transactions with a location, you can create and fulfill sales orders by location, create and receive purchase orders by locations, and search transactions by locations. You can also filter reports to obtain an accurate representation of sales, purchases, and employee data for each company location. To filter reports by location, choose a location in the footer of the report.
The Location field is mandatory for inventory transactions when Locations is enabled. To enable the Locations feature, go to Setup > Company > Setup Tasks > Enable Features (Administrator). On the Company subtab, check the Locations box and then click Save.
To associate a transaction with a location:
Click the Transaction menu.
Click the type of the transaction you want to create.
In the Classifications section, in the Locations field, select the appropriate location.
Complete the transaction as required.
For example, you can select a location in the header of a Sales Order to record where the sale is made. On the other hand, you could select a location in the header of a Purchase Order to identify where you expect to receive those items.
After transactions have been associated with a location, you can then search transactions by location.
