Hi , Localize to Malaysia OpenERP business requirement , one of our esteem client in Kuching , Sarawak requesting us for the procedures of how to split DO and then re-group it back for INVOICING . Here is the instruction with screenshots on how to split a single Delivery Order into multiple Delivery Orders, and then create a single Invoice from those splitted Delivery Orders. The screenshots are taken using the OpenERP of one of our Sarawak client as example.

Screenshot 1 & 2:
Currently we have a Delivery Order (OUT/00007) which has three lines and not available yet.
The three lines of products are:

  1. Name Cards (30 Boxes)
  2. Letterhead (10 RMS)
  3. Banner (20 PCS)

Screenshot 1: Delivery Order OUT/00007
Screenshot 2: The three lines are not available
Screenshot 3:
Before we can deliver the products, the status of the products must be “Available”. We can make them available by clicking the “Force Availability” button, or to receive the products one by one.

Once the products are available, we can now do the deliver step.
There is a “Deliver Products” under the “Products Moves”, but it will not split the Delivery Order. That is why we will do the deliver step using the “Process” button in the Delivery Order form.

Screenshot 5:
After you click the “Process” button, a dialog box appears, requiring user to enter the products and the quantity to be delivered.

Here we choose to deliver 10 Namecards and 10 Letterheads. Click “Validate” to confirm the delivery.

Now the Delivery Order only has 20 Namecards and 20 Banners left not delivered. The delivered products have been splitted to another Delivery Order “OUT/00008”, as mentioned in the “Back Order Of” field.

By viewing the listing of the Delivery Orders, you can see that there are two Delivery Orders with same Origin.
The Delivery Order OUT/00007 contains the delivery of 20 Namecards and 20 Banners, while OUT/00008 contains the delivery of 10 Namecards and 10 Letterheads.
These two are splitted from a same Delivery Order shown in Screenshot 1.
Click the “Print Delivery Order” at the right side of the form to print out the Delivery Order.

Now you want to generate the invoice from the two Delivery Orders. The “Generate Invoice” in the Delivery Order form only generates Invoice for a single Delivery Order, so we need to look for another method.
Go to “Sales” >> “Invoicing” >> “Deliveries to Invoice”.

Screenshot 12:
The Deliveries to Invoice listing shows the list of Delivery Orders pending of generating invoice. Here you can see that the Delivery Order OUT/00007 and OUT/00008 are appeared in the list.
