During the daily business process in Procure to Pay cycle there are two documents communicated from vendor side which are product receipt, and invoice. Those documents are used to authorize the afterwards processes which are used as validation documents.

I will share with you control option which MS Dynamics AX 2012 offers on these documents (product receipt, and invoice)  which is designed into two layers the first layer is built in control in MS Dynamics AX 2012, and the second control is configurable control.

The product receipt document: represents the goods reception transaction in warehouse, this document has a reference number based on vendor document, the warehouse keeper record this reference number which could be used in reconciliation process with the vendor, and it is used in invoicing process as well.
