When we create purchase orders for Overhead expense parts/items such as shop supplies, equipment parts, it creates IV WIP transaction PUR-UKN (Unknown). Can we change that to be MRO or OTR for other?


Transaction Types are set in stone. (See the Inventory Transaction Hierarchy guide on EpicWeb.)

Are you looking to direct the PO line to a certain account? You can manually override the account on the PO if it is an Other line; use the Release tab. Or set up a part class, assign it to the line and give the part class a GL control. Or even set up a part number (call it MRO, maybe) and put the GL control there.


What other type of transactions would want to remain as PUR-UKN?

No this cannot be changed. It is hard coded into the system.
