Go to Purchasing -> New Purchase Order

This option is used to enter a new purchase order for a supplier.

Users require level 1 purchasing security to be able to enter a purchase order and level 3 to maintain a purchase order.

Please note that stock can be receipted into the computer via the New Goods Receipt option without a purchase order. A purchase order is not always required to receipt goods. Purchase orders are recommended for normal stock ordering procedures.

Enter the supplier number or start of their name to do a standard search.
If the supplier has any alert messages these will be displayed to the user before continuing. See Add or Maintain a Supplier and Supplier Pricing & Ordering Details for more details.

For the majority of purchases the supplier is the only field that is required. Click on the "Save" button to start entering line items.

Other information that can be entered on the purchase order is found here: Purchase Header Details
