Free text invoices

This article describes how to create a free text invoice in Dynamics AX 2012.

A free text invoice is an invoice that is not attached to a sales order. A free text invoice contains a header and one or more lines for items or services that are not tracked in inventory. Free text invoices are generally used by the accounting service because you need to put directly the general account in the lines.
