    If you mean the BOL as an EDI ASN, that can be mapped. For example, where the 856 BSN requires the vendor internal shipment number I’ve used Origin Navision, NAV Table Sales Shipment Header, Field No.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I edited my original note because there was no DELETE option, but I guess EDIT did not work either because my update is not on on the original post.

    The request I received is actually different than what I posted. The user actually wants a custom value (customer’s shipment number) entered on the Sales Order carried through to and printed on the BOL. The best option for this will be a modification.

    This is really an experiment and I used ChatGPT and by setting the context from the original question and that the base ERP system is Microosft Dynamics 365 Business Central.

    Request to ChatGPT:

    regarding Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central “…a way for the Shipment Document Number to appear on a Lanham Bill of Lading (without a modification)”?

    ChatGPT Response:
    In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, the Shipment Document Number can be displayed on a Lanham Bill of Lading without making modifications to the system by utilizing the available customization options. Here’s a general approach to achieving this:

    1. Open the Lanham Bill of Lading report layout in the Business Central development environment (AL Language).

    2. Locate the section of the report layout where you want to display the Shipment Document Number. This can typically be found in the header or footer sections of the report.

    3. Add a new field or text box in the desired location.

    4. Set the data source of the new field to the Shipment Document table (typically, the table is called “Shipment”).

    5. Bind the field to the Shipment Document Number field in the data source.

    6. Adjust the formatting and positioning of the field as per your requirements.

    7. Save and publish the modified report layout.

    Once these changes are implemented, the Shipment Document Number will appear on the Lanham Bill of Lading report whenever it is generated.

    Please note that these instructions assume a basic understanding of report customization in Business Central using AL Language. It’s always recommended to consult with a developer or an experienced Business Central consultant for specific guidance related to your system and version.

    I hope this is helpful and if not please forgive this experiment.
