Lines Tab Page

The Lines Tab Page in the PO Entry program displays the line items for the PO that is being created or edited.  The Lines Tab Pageis also used to add new lines to the PO or to select an existing PO line to be edited.

The fields that are displayed in the Line Tab Page of the PO Entry program can be customized using a browse parameter file but they normally include the PO line number, the quantity of the item that is being ordered, the quantity of the item that has already been received, and the item number and item description of the item being ordered.

The price being paid to the vendor, the date on which you have requested the item and the PO line status are also normally displayed in this section.

You may view the field definitions for each of the fields that are displayed in this section of the program by selecting the Column Help option using the Context or Right Mouse Menu.  This action will activate the Data Dictionary Field Help program which can be used to display the definitions for all files and fields in the database.
