Purchasing Table

List of Fields in the Table

The Purchasing table contains the codes and definitions of the various purchasing activities that you can select from when you plan the purchase of any item, including nonstock items.

You set up these activities in the Purchasing Code Entry window.

When you enter an item on a sales line, you can indicate the purchasing activity that must be carried out for that line. For example, you may have set up a purchasing activity that instructs the purchaser to call the vendor and request a drop shipment. You enter the code for this activity on the sales line in the Purchasing Code field.

You can identify a purchasing activity as either a drop shipment or special order by placing a check mark in the Drop Shipment or Special Order fields in the Purchasing window. Only one of these fields can be selected for any given activity.
