Splitting Sales Documents


In SalesPad, sales documents can be split from the Sales document entry screen, and as they move through workflow. A single sales document can be split into separate documents on a line item basis when the items have met certain criteria, which can be configured in the Security Editor.

Splitting a Sales Document

To split a sales document from the Sales document entry screen, select Split Sales Document from the Actions dropdown menu on the sales document header. 

The Splitting Document window will display the current criteria the document is splitting on.

This criteria can be changed by setting the Split Options according to how users want the document to be split. 

Click OK to trigger the split.

Once a document is split, the original document no longer exists. The new split documents will have the same base document number (ex. ORDST0019103.1 and ORDST0019103.2). 

Sales Document Manual Split

Users can also manually split a document and assign quantities of each item to a split.

To manually split a document, click the Actions button and select Sales Document Manual Split to open the manual split screen.

This screen shows details for each line item.

Under Ship Qty, enter the quantities of each item to split onto a new related document

Click OK, and confirm the split by clicking Yes on the confirmation window.

Click OK to return to the sales document.

The quantity amounts will have changed on the open order. To view the new split document, click the Related Documents tab and select the document (it will have the same order number followed by a decimal). Users can continue to split the document as needed.


To set up workflow to automatically split documents from the Workflow Setup module, select the document type from the Sales Document Types grid. In the Workflow Queues grid, click the dropdown arrow in the Plugin field and select Split Sales Document

Click Save  for the changes to take effect.
