Partial deliveries are defined in terms of return order lines, not return order shipments. That is, if you receive the full quantity that is indicated on one return order line but nothing from the other lines in the return order, the delivery is not a partial delivery. However, if a return order line calls for ten units of a particular item to be returned, for example, but you receive only four, it is a partial delivery.

If a return shipment contains less than the full quantity of a return order line, you can set the shipment aside and wait for the rest of the returned quantity to arrive, or you can register and post the partial quantity.
