I updated today our development database with CU07. Just for the heck of it, I took a bit deeper look on the updated objects.I found out that there is a lot of changes regarding to dimension inserting on the different subpages, and some (expected) field extensions from 30 to 35.Then I found something interesting. There appears to be new functionality regarding to Customer and Vendor addresses on Purchase and Sales documents.There is a new field on Purchases & Payables Setup and Sales & Receivables Setup: "Ignore Updated Addresses".If this field is not set (default), then whenever you change Customer or Vendor address on Purchase or Sales order or invoice, you get a notification to change the Customer or Vendor address accordingly.This is really nice functionality, and I hope this will be expanded to other areas in NAV as well.
Sorry for the delay, I was on a vacation and unable to access DUG while the trip.
Now I realised what you mean. This is really easy to go around, just leave the "Cash Customer" as the name of the customer, and insert the "real name" of the customer to "Address 1" line, and fill the other information as normal address. I tried this, and this resulted a posted invoice as below (hopefully the screenshot is clear enough, it seems very small).
There is one slight bug though, you have to change the "Bill-to" field from Default (Customer) to "Another Customer" in order to actually print out the inserted information. Othervise NAV will leave [insert address here] as bill-to address, which is IMHO not nice.
An issue for me too. Problem is that I actually want to write Cash-customer's name on a specific order (reasons are: print a receipt, have the name on the posted invoice, ...).
But I cannot as NAV demands me to either create a new customer with that specific name or to select an existing customer.
There is a simple solution. Very simple, infact: The should be a third option: "Keep change"!
Hello Thomas, thank you for commenting. I am a bit confused here, we have multiple customers who indeed have a "Cash customer" set up, and whenever they use this customer, they change the name and address fields for that specific order.
Please find more from Microsoft Docs: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dynamics-nav-app/finance-how-to-set-up-cash-customers
And I find it annoying that you cannot have a "general" customer no. and just change the name on the one order or invoice you will ever post to that customer.
Thanks. I have had customers ask for this change almost since I started working with Navision in 1990. Nice to see that it's now standard.
