Your system allows you to part deliver and part invoice a sales order any number of times before you finally complete or cancel the order.
Every item on an open order and an order itself can have nothing delivered (None), part of the order quantity delivered (Part) or all of the order quantity delivered (Full). Similarly an open order can be not yet invoiced at all (None), invoiced in part (Part) or in full (Full).
Choose the combination of check boxes to produce the report containing only those orders that satisfy the selection. The check boxes are “sticky” so the combination you select will be remembered the next time you use the form. Some check boxes will be greyed out if your parameter settings disable that part of the order process.
