Ability to Change the Vendor on a PO

We need to be able to change the vendor on a PO. Once a receipt for a PO has been released, it isn't possible to change the vendor on PO, even if a return is entered and released and the status of the PO is Open.

    Hi Karen,

    We are planning to enable an ability to change the vendor ID in a purchase order until there are no transactions associated with this purchase order (receipts, returns, AP bills).

    Otherwise audit trial of transactions will be very complicated (purchase receipt has one vendor ID, while the PO to which it refers has a different vendor ID in the header...), it will be very confusing.

    This functionality would save a lot of time.  Currently our project managers create po’s with a vendor and then when it gets to our purchasing manager he often needs to change vendor because he found a better alternative.  This means he has to rebuild the whole P.O. from scratch.  Same thing when initiator assigns to wrong  gl account.

    to correct gl account we lose the whole line and then it has to be reapproved.

    Makes sense that you wouldn't be able to change the Vendor on a Purchase Order if there are already transactions against it (like receipts). That way it would work the same as the ability to change Customer on a Sales Order like was done with this request (you get an error if Payments were applied for example):

    Right now you can change the Vendor on a Purchase Order, but only if there are not lines which of course isn't very useful.

    So it would still be very nice to be able to change a Vendor on a Purchase Order (without transactions), especially when using the Copy/Paste function to copy a Purchase Order from one Vendor to another.

    Any idea what Acumatica version this will make it into?
