Purchase Orders

Why can't I find how to turn on Purchase Orders under the Vendors tab of my Quickbooks toolbar?

Purchase Orders

I've got you covered, @stevenjeffreycraig


The way you turn on purchase orders is going through the Edit menu. That's why you're not able to locate purchase orders or how to turn them on in the Vendors menu. Don't worry. It only takes a few simple steps. Here's how: 


  1. Go to the Edit menu. 
  2. Choose Preferences
  3. On the left-hand navigation bar, pick Items & Inventory
  4. Select the Company Preferences tab. 
  5. Put a check inside the Inventory and purchase orders are active box. 
  6. Tap OK



Afterward, you can start creating your purchase orders in your QuickBooks Desktop account. 


If you have any other questions or concerns, please let me know. Have an amazing day!
