Customer Part Numbers
The customer part number is used to allow you to print your customer’s part number on an invoice along with your own part number. Typically used where the customer has an internal number that they use for their own stocking purposes. The customer must be identified as having their own part numbers. This feature only works with Stocking Part Numbers
The customer must be identified as having their own part numbers which is done through the Customer Maintenance by adding an “A” into one of the Account Control Flags.
