Freight costs can now be added to open special orders when the purchase order is received.

When you receive a purchase order with special order items, and enter a freight cost, the following message appears.

If you click Yes or press Y, a line item is added to the associated special order for the freight cost, and additional notes are included that identify the purchase order number and date and time the items were received.

If a special order required more than one purchase order or the special order items on a purchase order are received at different times, your special order invoice can include multiple freight costs.
