When you create a Warehouse shipment for multiple sales orders it will populate the external document no from one of the sales orders to the Header. Then when you post the whse shipment it will update the sales orders for any sales orders that the external document no on the whse ship is different than the sales order.

This is a really bad "feature" as it overwrites the external document on the sales order and posted shipment and since this is the Customer Po number it makes a huge mess.
