eLink APPT 21,1 Saleline & Purchase Order Line

Goto: eLink Home | Purchase Order Line

This APPT packet holds information about a product sold, or being purchased. It differs from a product definition in that this packet holds item specific information, such as price used or serial number.

2'E'Required. Constant '1'
3'E'Required. Constant '21'
200'E'Required. Product id for the product being sold.
If this saleline is a modifier (rare) this field contains the Modifier id#. If product ids are not being used (and this is very special case) then the Global Product Id field (f212) must be supplied
201'E'NYI. Product variant id for the product being sold
202'E'Quantity of product being sold. If not specified the value is assumed to be 1 (one). The quantity field is an integer (not a fractional number) in the measurement units of the product. Most items are unit based (a bar of chocolate), but others are weight or volume based ("flour"). If the item is measured in grams, then this field contains the number of grams. Use caution, as prices are typically in a different measurement, such as $ per Kilogram.
203'E'Pidflag for the product being sold, which indicates the type of product id in f200. All normal products (those listed in retailmax.elink.products) use PidFlag=0, which is the default if not supplied. A value of "5" is used for Product Modifiers.
205's'Required. Total price including all taxes where possible.
206'E'Optional line sequence (ordinal position). If supplied, must be a positive integer.
207's'Optional. Part Code, or PLU code to be selected. Commonly used on an inbound purchase order where Pid (f200) is unknown.

210'E'Optional/Rare. Prepay card account number. Special usage only
211's'Optional. Registration number of a Vehicle. Is ONLY used to hold motor vehicle registrations
212's'Optional/Mandatory. Global Product Id. A controlled numbering scheme where every product is allocated a unique number/letter sequence, but the scheme allows independent creation of new id values. If you use this field, values must conform to the allocation standard.

303's' Total value of line, including all taxes. This value should equal f304 + f305 + f306 + f307. If a sale contains a mix of taxable and non-taxable items, these fields must be present on all packets.

305's' Total of tax #1 (GST in New Zealand, Australia, Zimbabwe. MwSt in Germany. VAT in United Kingdom)

400'E' Optional. Fuel Dispenser used for this item.
401's' Optional. Serial Number of item. The quantity of this line is expected to be "1" as only one serial number can be stored per line

421's' Customers order number. This is used on salelines only to record the customers orderno.
500's' Tracked Item Reference #. A key that references a single tracked item
501's' Physkey ref. A key referencing another object. Valid only in certain circumstances

Purchase Order Lines

These fields are used to hold information that is unique to a purchase order, and will not be found on salelines

1001's'Supplier Part Code to order
1002'e'Quantity of f1001 (Supplier Part Code) to order. This is the number of outers, not total units. So if the supplier part code "ABC-5" is an outer of 5 units, and you wish to order 2 boxes to get a total of 10 units, this field would contain "2".

Extended information

These fields are sometimes present when representing a sale, but are not directly required. For example, a field here holds the description of the product, when the pid field (f200) holds a pointer to the product anyway. These fields are useful when sending a sale to another system, as this additional information can save extra network trips.
