Printing a Sales Line/s from History

The screen showing the full Sales Line/s list on a previous page is where you click on the Print button.It allows the printing of different analysis reports to check the Inventory movements.
Be aware that SapphireOne will print everything on the screen so you will have to use the (Command F ) shortcut key to find the sales lines that you want to print.
Select the records that you wish to include and select Show Subset from the Options menu before selecting the Print button.

As documented just above SapphireOne will print the reports on exactly what is on screen at the time of requesting the report. If one item is on screen the report will be based on the one item.
