Purchase Request Report Has News

Lists and reports give us the sense of control. When we have all the data in front of us we feel empowered – we know what’s going on, where everything is OK and what should be improved. We appreciate reports that we can rely on for making decisions or taking actions. The “Purchase Request Report” has been always more than just showing data as it allows users to create directly Purchase Quotations or Purchase Orders for selected items, but this doesn’t end here – new columns “G/L Account” and “G/L Account Name” are added to the report displaying the respective data:

The “G/L Account” column is editable, allowing you to update account info directly in the report. In addition, the values in these new columns will be updated every time you update values such as vendor code or warehouse according to the rules defined in the account determination. When creating purchase orders from within the report the updated information is retrieved from the report and not from the original purchase request.
