How can I add sales task ID or invoice numbers to the lot recall letter template? I can not find required mergefield value in your mailmerge fileds manual.
Unfortunately no customisation mailmerge fields are available for Recall Letter template, user can only customise text if required. This can be raised as a feature request on our forum and considered for future development releases.
Can you tell me why this report is not showing any supplier for this product whereas it is showing stock on hand as well as finished goods records and sales orders for customers?
If the units came from stock adjustment, there will be no supplier attached to the batch and thus no supplier details will show on Lot Recall.
How can I create a report which shows which product /LOT number was sold when to which customer?
Unfortunately there is no report that can provide you a list of orders with Lot numbers attached. This can be raised as a feature request on our forum and considered for future development releases. You can run a Customer Order by Product report, this report will provide product ordered by customer however Lot number is not provided.
