36.3 Comparing Amounts Ordered with Amounts Received

When a purchase order is sent to a vendor, the vendor may or may not be able to complete the order. In addition, some of the items received may be damaged and returned. The Purchase Order reports Purchase Orders by Vendor, Purchase Order Summary by Vendor, and Purchase Order Summary by Product, list amounts ordered and received.

The parameter screens for the first two reports ask questions that allow you to select the purchase orders and vendors to be displayed.


The purchase order date is the date of the purchase order, not the due date. If no dates or vendors are entered in the selection fields, all purchase orders for all vendors are displayed.

The information displayed on the report Purchase Order Summary by Product, can be selected by purchase order date and product category.


If these fields are left blank, all product categories for all purchase orders are displayed on the report.
