Purchase orders (POs) can be created from an invoice/quote and be stored for review. For every selected item in the invoice/quote, a PO will be created for each unique supplier. When a PO is created from an invoice/quote, the account name and account number are put in a note at the top of the PO. Notes associated with a part will be below the part and associated only with that part. If multiple notes are stacked on top of each other, they all go with the associated part above them.

To create a PO from an invoice/quote:

  1. In Paladin, on the top ribbon, select the Invoice/Quote module.
  2. Click the down arrow in the Customer list. The Advanced Lookup window opens.
  3. In the Advanced Lookup window, highlight the customer name and click F8 Select Customer.
  4. In the Part Number box, enter a part number and press Enter.
  5. In the Quantity box, enter the quantity required and press Enter until you are out of the row.
  6. If you want to add a note for this part, press F2 Add Note.
  7. In the Notes row, enter your note and press Enter.

Note: This note is associated to the part entered above.

  1. Continue steps 4 -7 until your invoice/quote is complete. When done, highlight each field to be added to the PO.
