The Special Order system covers existing and non-stocked products. When you place the special order, it will auto-generate pending purchase orders for all suppliers identified with that order.

  • Every special order item is named SO and is followed by a unique computer-generated SO number.
  • With the SO number, you can track the special order and the receiving, sales, and financial gain transactions.
  • The new SO item is blocked from being reordered.
  • The SO is set to a unique automatic department number 20,000 and is based on the employee’s ID number.
    • So, if employee 15 created a special order item, the department will be 20,015.
    • This allows for detailing by salesperson the sales, costs, and margins on the daily and monthly comparative revenue reports.
  • When you store the SO, it cannot be modified and stored again.
