Advanced Scripting for MAS 90 / MAS 200 ERP - automatically changing warehouses in data entry

In a prior blog post, we summarized a feature in Sage MAS 90 / MAS 200 ERP called "Advanced Scripting". Here is a real-world example of how to implement a script in version 4.40 (or above) that can save a company time and money:
Company XYZ has multiple warehouse codes. When line items are entered on a sales order, sometimes the user entering the order enters the wrong warehouse. As a result, if they wish to change the warehouse code, they must do so on each line.

To save our customer time, we attached a script to the warehouse code on the sales order header. When this warehouse code is changed, it prompts the user to change the warehouse on all the lines. With this simple script, the company saves time for their employees and avoids orders that inadvertently contain line items with different warehouses.
