Receipt of Purchase Orders with Zero Cost

In Vantage 8 you can customize the goods inwards screen to warn or stop
anyone form booking in zero value PO's.



Maybe a message telling the goods inwards user to contact the Purchasing
department.

We have this same problem but the only way we have fixed it is put the
price
field on our open PO report. This way we are constantly watching for it.
We
also had hopped that by not approving it we would not be able to receive
either. Would make sense that you can't receive a PO until it has been
approved. A lot of good the approval process is if you can just receive
items when something is not approved.

Hope to hear good solution to this problem we could use the help also.

Thanks

Alan

Subject: [Vantage] Receipt of Purchase Orders with Zero Cost

Hello,

Occasionally, we send out purchase orders to suppliers that have a
zero entered for the unit price and a zero for total cost of the
PO. This occurs when the final cost will be determined by time and
material, and we have no idea what that final cost will be. This is
not a general practice, but it does happen from time to time. The
problem we are having is that we have not found a way within Vantage
(8.0) to keep these POs from being received within Vantage. We
tried to simply leave them unapproved, but they can still be
received. Do you know of a way or setting to block POs from being
received?

Thank you for any assistance.

I'm on 6 but you may be able to do something similar in 8. I have a BAM
on my receipt table so when something comes in for an unapproved PO, I
display a message saying not to receive the goods. You may be able to
set one up to not receive the goods if the cost is zero.
