Service type documents cannot be linked to jobs for the following reasons:
- We need an item code on the purchase order lines in Eralis Job. The system is built around having an item code.
- There is no real benefit for service type documents. The aim of a service type document is to specify the GL account that will be debited with the expense.
With any A/P document linked to a job, the work in progress GL account will always be the account that is debited.
So if service type documents were used, we would have to reverse the transaction that the user has entered and re-allocate to the work in progress GL account which would ultimately result in confusion for the user.
You will need to use non-inventory item codes on an Item Type PO.
