      You can use Purchase Order Processing to enter standard, drop-ship, and blanket purchase orders for items. When necessary, you can change the status of a purchase order or the individual line items on the purchase order. For example, you might cancel a line item on a purchase order if the item that you’ve ordered has been discontinued or if you won’t be receiving part of the quantity ordered for the purchase order.
      You also can use Purchase Order Processing to complete the following tasks:
      • Enter and post shipment receipts, in-transit inventory receipts, and invoice receipts individually or in batches
      • Enter and post shipment/invoice receipts individually or in batches
      • Match shipments to invoices so that accurate costs are assigned to items received into inventory
      • Apply landed costs, such as shipping costs and handling fees, to items
      • Use purchase order generator to automatically create purchase orders to replenish inventory quantities
      • Process purchasing returns and offsets the original purchase order transaction amount against inventory accounts and applicable general ledger accounts; returned items are matched to the original receipts
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008
