SAP Business One V10 gives you the option to set a reference to the original document when creating a duplicate. This saves time and effort tracing documents, as well as avoiding potential costly errors.
When your team is performing at top speed to deliver the best to your customers and the best for your business, they use all the time-saving functionality available at their fingertips in SAP Business One ERP.
One of these handy functions is where they can create multiple documents by simply duplicating previous documents.

SAP Business One is an ERP system developed for businesses that require the highest level of track and trace functionality, and can be implemented to adhere to the most stringent of industry regulations. It also has the flexibility to be configured to give you options to run your business in the way you need to. This is why it give’ you the option to choose whether or not you want to create a reference between the original document and the duplicated documents.
