The RA By Number report produces a list of the return authorization records that have been entered into your system. The RA By Number report outputs the header information for each of the selected return authorization records. RA header information is information that applies to the entire return authorization, and it includes information such as the Customer and Shipto Address associated with the RA. Other information stored in each RA header record includes the RA currency, the RA (header) status and Type, and the reference and invoice number associated with the RA.
