Over the past few months, you may have received a call from Sage asking if you’re ready to switch from Sage 300 to Sage 300Cloud. Before you can make that decision, you’ll probably want to know what you’ll get out of Sage 300Cloud.

Using Sage 300’s order entry module is a great way to handle shipping and billing processes with ease. However, there is one catch: Sage 300 requires that each individual order is shipped and invoiced separately. We’ll let you in on a secret. There’s a way to get around that limitation.

What most users don’t realize is that Sage gives us the tool we need to determine the right tables and fields to use. That tool is installed with Sage 300Cloud (formerly known as Accpac) and is readily available — if you just know where to look.
At our last Sage 300 User Group meeting, someone asked a question about speeding up the entry of AP invoices. I found that no one in the group was familiar with the little used feature that could help, so I thought a blog post might be in order to share with others.

Right now I'm copying and pasting. There must be a faster way." There were nods from everyone in the room. There MUST be a faster way. Indeed there is. It's hidden, but it's there.
