Purchase Order

Print this Topic Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page



The Purchase Order module allows you to enter, edit, delete or review your purchase orders.  You can record receipt of goods on P/O, keep track of partial receipts, delete an invalid P/O, and invoice the received portion of an order separately.  You can print your P/O's onto pre printed forms, or print them formatted and titled onto blank paper.  You can print a listing of open P/O's in order to track the orders you have coming in.


In addition, the Purchase Order module can keep a complete history of all received purchase orders for your convenience.  These history P/O's are the same as the P/O entry screen, with all entries labeled.  You can display individual P/O's on the screen, print within a specified range, or purge your P/O history to make room for more entries.  For more information on maintaining a history file, see Appendix D, Important Times.


Before using the Purchase Order module, you need to set up your vendors in AP-A, Enter/Change Vendors and create your inventory items (IC-A, Enter/Change Inventory).  Set up your A/P and P/O default settings in SY-A-C, Enter/Change A/P P/O Defaults.


The Purchase Order module contains the program options listed below.  Immediately following that is an overview of the program operations.  Finally, you will see a detailed explanation of each program, describing exactly how to use each one.


A -        Enter Purchase Orders

B -        Print P/O's on Forms

C -        Print Open P/O List

D -        Receive P/O's

E -        Display P/O History

F -        Purge P/O History




       A - Enter/Change Purchase Orders

Enter a P/O, change those entered previously, or enter P/O returns.  You can change a P/O even if it has already been partially received using PO-D, Receive Purchase Orders.  The print option within this program prints a facsimile of the P/O.


       B - Print P/O's on Forms

Prints the information entered in PO-A, Enter/Change Purchase Orders and prints it on P/O forms, or on blank paper.  The program will print the P/O's as many times as necessary.  You may choose a range of P/O's to print or to print all P/O's not yet printed.


       C - Print Open P/O List

Prints a listing of P/O's that have not yet been received. This report can be limited and sorted by vendor code, product code, or P/O number.


       D - Receive Purchase Orders

Records receipt of items on P/O's.  You can record the entire P/O received as entered, record partial receipts, record vendor invoices for received goods, and close a P/O.  Inventory on backorder on any sales order can be invoiced and shipped only after being received in this program.


       E - Display P/O History

Displays a posted P/O on the screen, or gives you the option of printing a listing of P/O history information, in the form of a succession of P/O entry screens with entry fields labeled.


       F - Purge P/O History

Deletes all records in the P/O history file, and displays the P/O information (P/O number, amount, etc.) as they are purged.


       G - Reprint P/O
