It is quite common to see people and things that fulfill multiple roles or serve multiple purposes. For instance, a computer that is used for work purposes and gaming, a customer that may also be a vendor, and certain items are also parent items in the Bill of Materials.

By default, when clicking the link arrow next to an item code which is also a bill of materials, the Bill of Materials window opens showing the child items. But what if you prefer to see the item master data of the parent item? For that purpose, SAP Business One introduces a new option allowing you to decide whether the link arrow would open the Bill of Materials window or the Item Master Data of the parent item:

Bill of Materials

You can change this setting at any time. By default, this option is not selected.

Available in SAP Business One 9.3, version for SAP HANA and SAP Business One 9.3.
