Sales Order creation using PDF Form

Executive Summary

This is a Sales Order creation form having extensive JavaScript validations. Basically it is a pair of PDF forms, one to be used by the sales representative and the other to be used by the back office staff to process and push orders to the database.

The first form (used by Sales Rep) takes customer list, shipping address list, product and price details as xml data input and this xml is pre-loaded into this form. This helps the sales representative to create a sales order with auto suggest dropdowns within PDF form. This generate an xml output, to be submitted as email to back office. The back office staff collects the xml order files from the email and load in the second form to check the validity of data. Then they do appropriate correction in data and export xml to be used to import to the database.

Each of the PDF form contains two section, Customer and Item Section. The Customer sections take the customer id, name, shipping and billing address etc. as input. The JavaScript auto suggest works to pick items from list boxes, as you keep typing. Change in one field reflects change in the other linked fields. The item section take a matrix of products in a tabular format, auto calculates the amount multiplying the unit price with quantity and also derives the total amount.
