Automatically Adding Messages to Purchase Orders

First, add the messages containing the specific text you’ll be automatically adding to the vendor purchase order. The next two screen shots define separate messages that will be automatically add to the vendor purchase order.


The PO_ADD-ON codes record allows you to define the add-on messages by warehouse, vendor, manufacturer order code and the PO type. The following codes record says “if the PO is for warehouse ’06, vendor 10350A, manufacturer order code ‘ZELT’, and it’s a stock order then add messages 204 and 205 to the purchase order. Fields 5 and 6 define whether or not you ALSO add any messages that may be defined for all vendors and/or manufacturer order codes.

Here’s an example of the messages being added automatically to the defined purchase order.

Price Protection at the Part Number Level

Price Protection at the Part Number Level

Product File Maintenance contains a flag (line 95) that allows you to password protect the selling price at the part number level.

Changing line 95 to ‘Yes’ will force prompting of a password when a user attempts to override the sell price in Order Entry.

The override password is defined in a ‘PW’ codes record.

Here’s the codes record whereas the password is highlighted.

Setting a Vendor to Auto-vouch

Setting a Vendor to Auto-vouch

Vendor File Maintenance, screen 3, line 17 – change the flag to the desired action. Auto-vouching credits may not be desirable so you can choose ‘Invoice only’ thereby auto-vouching incoming electronic invoices but NOT credits.
