Automatically add Delivery Note Ref to Sales Invoice

One of my customers needs to be able to cross reference the delivery note I supplied with goods delivered, to the invoice that i send at a later date. Is it possible to add this field to the sales invoice so that it updates automatically when creating a sales invoice from a delivery note?

No. In the first place, delivery notes cannot be copied to sales invoices or any other transaction. There are complexities in how the program behaves, depending on whether Purchase Invoices, Sales Invoices, Goods Receipts, as well as Delivery Notes tabs are enabled, that make this impractical. But you could add a custom field to your sales invoices into which you could enter delivery note numbers. You could even make that custom field a line-item custom field so you could reference different delivery notes for different line items, covering situations where a single sales invoice encompasses multiple delivery notes.
