About Entering SM Work Order Lines
Once an invoice is posted using the AP Unapproved Invoice Posting form, lines of type 8-SM Work Order result in work completed miscellaneous lines in the SM Work Orders form (Work Completed tab).
The units, unit cost, and gross values for the detail line become the cost values (quantity, rate, and total) for the work completed line.
If you specify a job-related work order and the job associated with the work order has been soft or hard-closed, you are allowed to save the record, regardless of whether you allow posting to closed jobs. However, if you do not allow posting to soft or hard-closed jobs (that is, the Allow Posting to Hard-Closed Jobs and/or Allow Posting to Soft-Closed Jobs check boxes are not selected in the JC Company Parameters form), you will be unable to post the invoice in AP Unapproved Invoice Posting.
Work order scopes referenced on a detail line must be assigned a call type, rate template, and/or phase (if a job work order) in SM Work Orders. If you enter a scope that is missing one or more of these values, the system allows you to save the line; however, you will be unable to post the invoice (in AP Unapproved Invoice Posting) until the specified information is entered for the work order scope in SM Work Orders.
If you specify a work order scope that is closed, you are allowed to save the record; however, you will be unable to post the invoice in the AP Unapproved Invoice Posting form.
