When a PO is added to a supplier’s transaction, the purchase orders are automatically closed so they won’t appear again.

Here are the steps to add a purchase order to a bill/expense/cheque:

  1. Select + New from left navigation frame of QuickBooks online, once you log in.
  1. Select Expense or You can also select Cheque or Pay bills.
