You can use Express Accounts to generate purchase orders when you need to order from your suppliers.

Create a New Purchase Order

From the Purchases menu select New Purchase Order or click the Create new Purchase Order link from the Purchases tab, and the New Order dialog will open. Begin filling out the order by selecting the vendor's name from the Order Supplier drop-down box, and their billing and shipping address will be filled out for you. If you are creating an order for a new supplier, simply type their name into the Order Supplier field, and fill in their address.

Enter items into the order by clicking anywhere inside the items list to create a new item entry. Click within the Item or Description cell and use the drop-menu to quickly locate an item by its code or description. For new items, enter the details into the order, and the details will be added to your items list for you, and will be available the next time you want to create a quote, order, or invoice. Enter the quantity, and the totals will update automatically.

Save the purchase order by clicking Record at the bottom of the screen. For more saving options, including Record and Email, click the triangle on the right side of the Record button.

For more detail about all the fields on the New Order dialog, view the New Order topic in the Screen References section of this manual.

View Existing Purchase Orders

To view a list of all purchase orders, click the View icon in the toolbar and select Purchase Orders. By default, the list displays recorded purchase orders only. To view all orders, or just draft orders, use the drop-menu labeled Display Orders to select.
