As a sales order for a Broker item is entered, the system uses the information in the sales order line to create a po requisition for the item to be shipped to the customer. The system automatically sets the vendor, manu item#, vendor item# and the price fields in the po requisition based on the information entered by sales during sales order entry. The system also places any required holds on the sales order.
Once the order holds have been released, by the sales credit, or other appropriate party, the purchasing department can tag the requisition lines for the order and create a purchase order to the vendor. The shipto address in the purchase order automatically defaults to the shipto address used on the customer sales order, and any other information (purchasing or other comments, manu item#, vendor item#, extended description for the Broker item, etc, is also transferred to the new purchaser order.
