Purchase Order Ship Date Report

When I run an open purchase order report in quickbooks, the ship date listed is the actual purchase order creation date rather than the ship date entered in the PO. Does anybody know how to show the correct ship date when you run an open PO report?

Hello there, @dterrasolutions.

 

It's nice to have you in the Community. I'd be happy to help walk you through in customizing the Open Purchase Order report to show the "ship date" you've entered.

 

In order to show the Ship Date correctly on the report, you need to customize the Purchase Order (PO) template first and add the Expected date. Let me show you how:

  1. Open the PO. 
  2. At the top menu, select the Formatting tab.
  3. Click Customize Data Layout.
  4. From the Header column, mark the Expected check boxes.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Enter the ship date in the EXPECTED field.
  7. Click Save & Close.

After that, you can create and customize the Open Purchase Order report to show the ship date.

  1. From the Reports menu, select Purchases.
  2. Select Open Purchase Orders.
  3. At the top left, click the Customize Report button.
  4. From the Display tab, select Ship Date.
  5. Click OK

I've attached some articles below for additional reference: 

That should point in the right direction today. Drop me a comment below if you have any other questions about adding the correct ship date in the Open Purchase Orders report, or if you have any other questions about QuickBooks. I'll be happy to help you out.
