How to manually create purchase orders in Business Central?

In this video, I want to show you how to create a purchase order manually.

This is what happens in the video

From the purchasing menu, I will go into purchase orders and in the purchase orders, I will select New, the purchase number will be default filled in, and then the vendor name or number, and when I enter that, it will automatically fill the header information on the purchase order.

In this case, I would like to select item number 1115, which is the alu rim, and I would like to order 300 of those, and buy some freight, and I buy this with charge item, meaning, I will select charge item, and I can define different types, so this is a freight.

One of those, and maybe they cost 350 euros, and what I need to do, either now or when the invoice comes, is to assign the charge items with the items line.

This means, I can select more options, lines, item charge assignments, after being placed on the specific line, of course, and then in my item charge window I can suggest item charge, and the charges will be assigned to the item ledger entry that is created, when I post this line, I can send the purchase order to the vendor either by email, or I could just print it directly here.

In this case, I will just print it to the screen, to see what it looks like, and as I can see on the printed document, it will all be in english, because the vendor has an english language code.

And the currency will be Euro, because it’s set on the vendor card.
