Create a purchase order

  1. Go to Accounts payable > Purchase orders > All purchase orders.
  2. Click New.
  3. In the Vendor account field, click the drop-down button to open the lookup.
  4. Find a vendor to select. For example, scroll down to US-104.
  5. Select vendor US-104.
  6. Click OK.
  7. In the Item number field, click the drop-down button to open the lookup.
  8. Select an inventory item. For example, select item number 1000.

  12. On the Action Pane, click Purchase.
  13. Click Confirm.

Create a vendor invoice

  1. Go to Accounts payable > Purchase orders > Purchase orders received but not invoiced.
  2. Select the purchase order that you created.
  3. On the Action Pane, click Invoice.
  4. Click Invoice.
  5. In the Number field, enter the invoice number.

    • Note that matching has not been performed since you made the changes.
  13. Click Update match status.
  14. On the Action Pane, click Review.
  15. Click Matching details.
    • The new line with services does not need to be matched so the status stays "Not performed".
  16. Select the product receipt for the inventory item that you received.
    • The line with the product receipt was matched but there is a mismatch of quantity or price so it fails.
  17. In the Unit price field, enter a number.
    • Now that the unit price matches, the status is updated to Passed. If your policy allows discrepancies or if matching is only a warning, you can still post the invoice.
  18. Close the page.
  19. Click Post.
  20. Close the form.
    • Note that the purchase order is no longer listed as received but not invoiced.
