You can now type simple mathematical equations or fractions, such as 1/6, 3*4, 32-3 or 19+7 into ‘Quantity’ input fields in Purchase Orders and Sales Orders and have the result automatically calculated.
In the following example, we wish to sell 5 individual bottles from a 24 x 330ml carton Stock Item. We simply type ‘5/24’ into the Quantity field of the Sales Order and the necessary calculation is automatically performed.
However please note that we still recommend that, if you commonly sell or purchase a stock item in different measures, you set these options up in the Conversion Rates area of the Stock Item itself. As well as making it simple to switch in a Sales Order from e.g. cartons to 330ml bottles, doing this will also allow you to set different default prices. (You may e.g. charge a higher per bottle rate for individual bottle sales, than for carton sales).
