Creating Purchase Orders Manually

If no quote has been set up when you place an order, you can create the order manually.

You can also assign item charges to items on an order.

To Create Purchase Orders Manually:

  1. Open the Purchase Order window.

  2. Press F3 to create a blank credit memo.

  3. Press F3 to create a blank order.

  4. In the Purchase Order window, fill in the No. field.

  5. In the Buy-from Vendor No. field, enter the vendor's number.

  6. On the first order line, in the Type field, select Item.

  7. In the No. field, enter the number of the item that you want to order.

  8. In the Quantity field, enter the quantity you want to order .


If the item is a bill of materials, you can explode it on the lines. This means that the components will be listed individually instead collectively in the BOM. To do this, enter the item number of the BOM in the No. field and click Functions, Explode BOM.


If the location on the purchase order line is set up to require bins (but not to require put-away processing), you can add a bin code on the purchase order line to indicate where the items should be placed in the location when they arrive.

If a vendor is also recorded as a contact in the Relationship Management application area, and if you have specified an interaction template code for purchase orders in the Relationship Management Setup window, when you click Print to print the order, the program automatically records an interaction in the Interaction Log Entry table.
