Happy to have you here in Community again, akpowell.
I'm here to help share information about creating Purchase Order.
QuickBooks Desktop automatically recalls the previous setup you’ve used when creating a Purchase Order. To set up the Purchase Order not to print later, you can uncheck it, then moving forward you’d no longer need to uncheck it from time to time.
That's it! For additional reference about this process, you can read this article: Create a purchase order.
