Business value

Vendor item numbers or bar codes are often more than 20 characters long. The fact that the Cross-Reference No. field can now hold 50 characters allows for faster and easier purchase processing when vendors' item numbers are converted to internal item numbers.

Feature details

When setting up or importing your item master data, you can now write larger numbers in the Cross-Reference No. field and use them on purchase document lines.
