On the page used to insert a new Supplier, there is a field named 'Parent Supplier' with an associated 'Parent Supplier Number' (a numeric code value) that can be entered for an existing Supplier.
We are wondering what values should be populated to these fields and what they represent, as we could not find any information within the available documentation. Can you please provide a
clear definition for what each of these fields are and how they are intended to be used?
