Reproducing the Issue
1. Go to Outbound Logistics workcenter and Shipments view.
2. Select All Freight List by Selection and Find 999(where 999 is the Freight List ID)
3. Select Freight List and Preview.
When the Outbound Delivery(OD) of the Manufacturing company is created and released, system checks whether the Inbound Delivery Request(IDR) corresponding to the Purchase Order 99999(where 99999 is Purchase Order number) created in the Sales company already exists.
If it exists, then the External Reference ID is updated with that of the External Reference Purchase Order ID of the Sales company's Sales Order,
based on the Inbound Delivery Request.
In other cases, when there is a delay in creation of this IDR in the Sales company, system does not update the Outbound Delivery with this above mentioned information. Since the IDR was created and released after the OD, this information was not available to the OD.
You should ensure that the Manufacturing company OD is Released(or created) only after the Sales company IDR is created.
This will ensure that the OD is updated with External Reference information of the Sales company's Sales Order's External Reference Purchase Order ID.
