Answer: There’s nothing more important to keeping accurate Inventory and Supplier Records than to make proper Purchase Orders, Quantity Receipts, and Finalized Receipts to track purchases from suppliers. In some supplier situations, there may be times when it’s necessary to add to a Purchase Order (PO) an additional charge for shipping, storage, or any other reason. To accomplish this in Solid Business Central, it’s as easy as editing a field at the time of saving the PO.
- In Solid Business Central, navigate to [Buying], and if a second menu level shows select [Buying] once again, to enter the ‘Buying’ screen.
- On this screen, select the supplier to create a new PO for, or enter in a supplier and select an existing but not yet finalized PO by using the [F2 – Open PO’s] key.
- Review this PO and make any changes if necessary. When ready, use [CTRL+END] to save it, and the ‘Order Totals’ menu will appear**, where the taxes and ‘Shipping’ can be added or adjusted. Use [CTRL+END] once again to save these changes and this Purchase Order.
**If the ‘Order Totals’ Menu Did Not Appear:
The ability to add additional charges to a PO is an option within the Company Configuration. To enable this ability in Solid Business Central, navigate to [System / Configure / Company / Settings], and change the ‘Order Total Edit?’ field to ‘Y’. Save this change with [CTRL+END] and resume Buying operations.
