✓By default, all Detail Line Items will have a Check in the Bill it column in the PO Line Items To Bill dialog.
▪The User may Choose that certain Detail Line Items will not be billed by removing that Check in that Bill It column.
✓By default, the number in the Quantity column in the PO Line Items To Bill dialog will also equal the quantity in the Received column in the PO Line Items To Bill dialog.
▪The User may change number in the Quantity column on any Detail Line Item in the PO Line Items To Bill dialog, thereby changing the quantity that will be billed.
✓Once the required billing adjustments have been made, create the Bill using the Generate Invoice option on the PO Line Items To Bill dialog.
•Back Orders - To better handle Back Orders, the Ordered Quantity may now be modified to match the Received Quantity when one or more Ordered Items will be unavailable (Back Ordered) from this Vendor for an extended period of time.
✓The recommended procedure for handing Back Orders is now:
1.Adjust - If none of an ordered item is going to be available in the near future from this Vendor:
a.Adjust the Quantity Ordered to match what if anything, has been Checked In (and therefore shown in the Received column )
b.Click the Save Icon
d.This action will automatically Close the Purchase Order,
e.Attempt to order the back ordered Quantity of those items from another Vendor.
2.Wait - Leave the Purchase Order open while waiting for the back ordered items:
b.Then, when those back ordered Items are eventually received, Check In those additional items at that time
e.This action will automatically Close the Purchase Order
a.Delete the Purchase Order
b.Then attempt to order the item(s) from another Vendor
