Understand quantity on purchase order

SOLVEDby QuickBooks88Updated January 16, 2024

Quantity on Purchase Order (PO) is a field that displays on inventory items. The purpose of this field is to keep a running count of inventory that is on order but not received yet.

The Quantity on PO for a product is based on the total product quantity on all open Purchase Orders, from all vendors and for all dates (including those dated in the future).

To show the QTY on PO column in the Products and Services list

  1. Select Settings ⚙, then Products and Services.
  2. Next to print and export, select Settings ⚙.
  3. Select Qty on PO, which will add the column.
