2000 Purchase order locations
Previous  Top  Next

The purchase order system has the same functionality as the sales order system in terms of being able to enter a location for each line item. As in the latest sales order entry program, a user can enter a default location (assuming they are not restricted to a given location via user permissions) and all subsequent line item entries will default to that location providing functionality similar to the past. For any given line item however the location can be changed to a different location if desired and when the purchase order is received, the inventory will flow to the line item location specified.

In order for a user to make smooth transition to line item locations, the installation runs a special program which updates the line item location fields with the location previously entered by the user so that pending PO's can be received without any effort by the end user.
