Item Charges

Dimension Handling Specify how dimensions should be handled. When using for the Item Charge Dimension option, the system doesn't execute the function; instead, it transfers the dimensions of the respective item charge to the line based on the dimension logic. When using for the Highest Amount option, the dimensions from the line with the highest amount are transferred to the item charge line. If two lines have the same amount, the dimension set of the first line will be used. When using for the Dimension Set ID option, each dimension set generates a ledger entry when the item charge line is posted. This ledger entry inherits dimensions from the assigned lines proportionally to their amounts.

You have set up an item charge. This item charge can now be added to the corresponding documents.
