So you’ve got a list of items and you need the information in one column to be the same for all? Well a quick way to do this is the “fill down” option.

So you’ve got a list of items and you need the information in one column to be the same for all?  Well a quick way to do this is the “fill down” option.  

Available in most tables when you right click on a value you’d like to copy the “fill down” option can serve to streamline tasks, such as selecting the same sublocation for all items when picking for a sales order or transferring stock from one location to another.  

What if you were transferring your stock from one location to another?  Using this feature in the transfer stock window you’d be able to select all the items you plan to transfer and then simply select the “from” and “to” locations in the first line.  “Fill Down” would allow you to have the system copy those locations all the way down your column so you don’t have to.  Get creative!  And remember: fill down will only fill below the line you’re clicking so if you have other items which don’t have the same values you can simply ensure they’re above your “fill down” line.
