Items ordered by description


Everytime I create an invoice or quotation or sales order, I guess is the same module, I have to select the items to add them to the invoice for example.  In this task would be very practical to have the items ordered by description to look for the item to select.  Can somebody tell me where I can make this modification to the source?

Thank you for your attention.

Hi Bob,

I'm not really able to help with your other questions, but the invoice 
number does indeed get generated if the invoice is printed.

I don't know if this is the way things are going to stay, but I'd 
guess they probably will do at least until 1.3 or at least until 
sometime after 1.3 has gone stable.

I would guess the reason for this is that one is not obliged to use 
incrementing numbers as per the defaults. If one wants one's invoices 
numbered 1, 2, 3, ..., then that's the way LedgerSMB behaves out of 
the box; if one wants one's invoices numbered 00001, 00002, 
00003, ..., or BM0001, BM0002, BM0003, ... then this can be specified 
in the system's defaults. If one wanted to set it so that invoices 
were numbered arbitrarily - eg 2010-010-19-BM1, 2010-010-19-BM2, 
2010-010-19-BM3, 2010-010-20-BM1, 2010-010-24-BM1 - then one would 
enter the invoice number in the empty box and LedgerSMB would just 
accept this.

You can trigger the invoice number generation by choosing "To Screen" 
in the printer selection drop-down at the foot of the invoice creation 
page (optionally, choose also PDF) and pressing "Print" - the invoice 
will be downloaded to the user's PC. I think the number will also be 
updated in the browser - assuming that it is, you could create a /dev/
null printer and set it as default to make the invoice number 
generation a single-click affair.
