Follow these steps to set up Sage 50 to auto-create Purchase Orders.
Select Maintain, Default Information, Inventory Items. Select the Ordering tab. Include Purchase Order Generation in Sage 50 when calculating quantity available. Enable auto-creation of purchase orders for drop ship transactions. Enable auto-creation of purchase orders for non-drop ship transactions. Note that if you check this option, Sage 50 automatically selects the Include purchase orders when calculating quantity available field. Click OK..
Select Maintain, Inventory Items. Minimum Stock Reorder Quantity. Preferred Vendor ID. Sage 50 will need all of this information for each item to ensure that the Purchase Orders are created properly. Save each customer record as you complete it.
Now, Sage 50 will automatically generate unprinted Purchase Orders for items that fall below minimum stock quantities, based on the vendor you chose and the Reorder Quantity entered for the items.
