SAP Business One Tips: Item Lookup, Item or Bill of Material?

Item Lookup: Item or Bill of Material?

Tip of the month

Its quite common to see aspects that fulfill multiple roles and serve multiple purposes. Here we consider that certain items are also parent items in bills of materials.

By default in SAP Business One, when clicking the link arrow next to an item code (which coincidentally is also a bill of materials) the Bill of Materials window opens showing the child items.

But what if you actually prefer to see the item master data of the parent item? For that purpose, SAP Business One introduces a new navigation option allowing you to decide whether the link arrow would open:

  1. The Bill of Materials window
  2. The Item Master Data of the parent item
