Working with Divisions (WDIV)

Purpose: You can use the Divisions function to:

• add or maintain divisions and their descriptions

• assign a division to an entity

Divisions are an important component of the Order Management System sales reporting hierarchy. Divisions can represent groups within business units (for example, winter, spring, summer, fall, and holiday within a business unit called Mail Order). If you are interested in grouping sales within an entity, create divisions. You must create at least one division per entity.
