When entering bills is there a way to have the open Purchase Orders come up by PO# instead of date?

Hello, SudekUSA. 

 

I appreciate your time today. I’m here to guide you to proceed with the process of creating a Bills and link it to Purchase Orders. Here’s how: 

 

  1. From the Vendors menu, pick Vendor Center.
  2. Select the vendor's name.
  3. In the Vendor Information section, find the Bill under the Transactions tab and double-click it.
  4. Click the Select PO icon.
  5. Check all the purchase orders that need to be included on the bill.
  6. Press OK, then Save & Close.

Check out the article on Accounts Payable workflows in QuickBooks Desktop for some in-depth information about how everything links together.  

 

Let me know if this helps, and if you run across anything else be sure to check out the QuickBooks Learn and Support page for more great how-tos and articles. Don't hesitate to leave a reply below, I'm always happy to further assist.

Hello SudekUSA.

 

The option to sort the purchase orders when adding them to a bill is unavailable. The system sorts the POs by date so you can see the recent ones you've entered. Just select the PO to add on the bill based on the number you set to it.
