By | December 31, 2014

A purchase order (PO) is a commercial document issued by a buyer to a seller, indicating types, quantities, and agreed prices for products or service that the seller will provide to the buyer. Sending a PO to a supplier constitutes a legal offer to buy products or services.
Sometimes it may possible that you would want to create same type of purchase order for some other vendor which consists of many line items. It is a lengthy and time consuming task to re-create the same PO manually.
Sage 300 ERP provides you with the Copy of Purchase Orders form that lets you select an existing purchase order, or a range of POs, on which to base a new purchase order. The details from the existing POs, including item numbers, quantities ordered, costs, and other information, appears as defaults for the new purchase order.
