RE: Automating Intercompany Sales Order Creation

I am trying to externally handle the drop ship of items across subsidiaries at arms length.


This is relatively easy at a manual level.


Subsidiary B raises Sales Order with Customer.

Subsidiary B raises Purchase Order with Subsidiary A

Subsidiary A raises Intercompany Sales Order (via Manage Intercompany Sales Orders)

Subsidiary A fulfills Intercompany Sales Order

Subsidiary A invoices etc.

Subsidiary B receives Intercompany Sales Order

Subsidiary B fulfills Sales Order for Customer


While this process is trivial within netsuite UI. I do not see a mechanism to initialize a Sales Order in Subsidiary A from a Purchase Order raised by Subsidiary B.


Is this even possible? I have attempted to manually create the Sales Order also, but this is rejected.

Just had a response back from Netsuite Support. As of this date it is not possible to automate this workflow through any means, tickets 218990  and 291060  are currently open enhancement requests.

Although, after you generate the intercompany sales order using the Manage Intercompany Sales Orders page, it is possible to automate the rest of the process. I’ve had to do that before for a customer. It’s just the link between the PO in Subsidiary B and the SO in Subsidiary A that have to be generated “manually” from that screen.
