Recieve partial PO

Hello there, @dlynch1.


You have to manually delete the item, then create an item receipt for each PO item in QuickBooks. I'll show you how to do it.


Here's how:

  1. Go to the Vendors, then click the Vendor Center.
  2. Select the customer's name.
  3. Click the Purchase Order you made.
  4. The prompt message will appear, then click Save Changes.
  5. At the top right select the Create Item Receipts.
  6. Click Yes, then select the Purchase Order Number.
  7. Select Ok, use Ctrl+Delete to manually delete the item then repeat twice.
  8. Click Save and Close.
