Stock Entry Setup - Entry Method

This function allows you to set up how data is to be imported for the transaction from where this function was started. For example, if you were in the Goods Receipt process when you clicked the Import button and then the Setup button, these details tell the system how data will be imported for the Goods Receipt function.
