Editing a Purchase or Work Order

Top  Previous  Next

Circumstances may arise where you will need to modify an existing Purchase or Work Order due to cost changes, unavailable merchandise, etc.  You can revise a Purchase/Work Order by selecting the document on the Documents and Accounting Window and clicking the Edit Edit Button button.  This will display the Edit / Change Order Window which is very similar to the New Purchase / Work Order(s) Window, except that it displays the Components on the Purchase/Work Order as already "tagged".  This is so Components can be removed or new Components can be added to the Purchase/Work Order while maintaining the same Order Number.

Any changes you have made in Projects and Specifications to Components currently on the Purchase/Work Order will be reflected on the Edit / Change Order Window.  To save the changes to the Purchase/Work Order, simply click the OK OK button button to print and accept the revised document.


There are a few differences between the Edit / Change Order and New Purchase/Work Order(s) Window and they are listed below:


Change Order:  Upon editing a Purchase/Work Order, Design Manager can selectively display the title "Change Order" in place of "Purchase Order" or "Work Order" on the document to relate to the Vendor or Workroom that revisions have been made.  Whether or not this option is selected is determined by the "Default to Change Order when editing" option on the Company Advanced Options Window - PO Tab.  See Company Advanced Options Window - PO Tab for a more detailed description of Change Order processing.


Revision Date:  When selecting the Change Order option, the Revision Date field will be available and will be the date displayed on the Change Order (revised Purchase/Work Order).  The Purchase/Work Order will maintain the original Order Date, however.
