When doing a Purchase Receipt Item, we create a new Batch from the Purchase Receipt Item Batch field lookup.
I’d like the Purchase Receipt Supplier to be automatically assigned to the new Batch.
I noticed there is already a field Supplier in the Batch doctype.
How could I enable this field, and automatically set its value from the Purchase Receipt Supplier when creating a new Batch ?
I tried Customize Form, then uncheck Read Only from the Batch.Supplier field, but it won’t allow me to save, giving error msg : You cannot unset ‘Read Only’ for field Supplier.
So instead, I tried to use a form custom script to enable the field like this:
I am not sure if this is a reliable solution because it will show the Supplier field only if it already have a value. So it won’t show the supplier field while in New mode.
I’m on frappecloud, so I can’t customize doctype js file directly.
Any help would be appreciated.
