Paladin was designed to accommodate unique supplier order numbers for each of the suppliers identified with a particular inventory item. Often, the supplier order number is not the manufacturer’s part number. Paladin has a feature that overrides the supplier specific order number system.

If enabled, this feature presents the manufacturer’s part number as the supplier order number on all POs regardless of the supplier or the specific supplier’s part number identified in the inventory item records. No EDI output is affected by this feature because EDI vendors expect to receive their part numbers, not a manufacturer’s part number. The PO displayed on screen and on the printed PO will show your part number on line one and the manufacturer’s part number on line two of every item ordered.

To enable this feature:

  1. In Paladin, from the main menu, select File > Setup.
  2. Select the Company tab.
  3. In the the Purchase Orders pane, check Display Manufacturer Part Number in POs.
  4. Click Save, and then click Close.
