If you ever called the AIF Sales Order Service in Dynamics AX 2009, then you had to specify the Customer Requisition (PurchOrderFormNum) field in SalesTable although this field is not really mandatory.

The Sales Order web service assumes that it is called from trading partners applications. Thus, whenever a sales order is created, this means that it has been created based on a request (Purchase Requisition most of the time) by this trading partner to your organization. And this requisition should be recorded in the PurchOrderFormNum field.

But why does the AIF Web Service create Journal type sales order then? The AxdSalesOrder class (the AX Document class) checks whether this sales order has been requested before by this customer (CustAccount field) or not. If it has been requested before, then this means that this customer (the one who sent this sales order document via the AIF Sales Order service) is purchasing based in the same Sales Order.. so Dynamics AX does not need to create another sales order, it creates Journal type sales order instead for the same customer and the same Customer Repulsion.

A great detail of the Sales Order Document Service is found in this link: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc967401.aspx.

You might face the same scenario that I’m facing with one of my customers currently, that is migrating sales orders from an internal legacy system where you want only to migrate sales orders without checking for a Customer Requisition. If this is what you’re looking for, then all what you have to do is to comment the code in AxdSalesOrder class and prepareSalesTable method:

select firstonly localSalesTable
where 	localSalesTable.CustAccount 		== _axSalesTable.parmCustAccount() &&
	localSalesTable.PurchOrderFormNum 	== _axSalesTable.parmPurchOrderFormNum() &&
	localSalesTable.SalesId           	!= _axSalesTable.parmSalesId();
 
/*COMMENT FROM HERE
if (localSalesTable)
{
	_axSalesTable.parmSalesType(SalesType::Journal);
}COMMENT TO HERE*/
