Part Orders

The Part Orders screen enables you to view and automatically generate purchase orders for parts to replenish stock. Each insert of a part order from this screen may include any number of parts from any number of vendors. When you process the insert, separate purchase orders are automatically created for each vendor (subject to some limitations). You can record the parts you want to order throughout the day and process the insert at the end of the day.

To use this screen, the Automatic numbering of purchase orders field on the Purchase Orders tab of the Purchasing - Setup - Options screen must specify a value other than NONE.

The Manage parts ordering and Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) values field on the General tab of the Parts - Setup - Options screen determines which screen to use in order to separate each vendor's purchase orders by product category:

You can use the filter to refine the information you want to display. See location level access.
