Answer: When manually adding inventory items to a transaction within Solid Sales Pro, such as on the '1131 Add Items' screen when making an invoice, the inventory list can be switched from being sorted by Part Code or Description by using the [Part] or [Desc] buttons respectively. It’s possible though to control how these inventory items are sorted by default, when the route sales person first enters one of these display screens, by adjusting a setting within their handheld computer’s mobile unit record. Setting this default sort order within their mobile unit record will still allow them to switch between these two sort types of part code and description as needed on the handheld computers, when viewing items in a list screen.
Enterprise Edition Users:
In Solid Business Central, navigate to [Datafile / Cost Center / Mobile] and display the mobile unit record that needs to be adjusted. Use the [F2 - Edit] key to make changes to this record, and find the ‘Sort’ field in the bottom left corner. Set this field to P to by default display items by Part Code, or to D to display by Description. Save any change with [CTRL+END], and sync the handheld computer for the change to take effect.
