Which fields on purchase and vendor should you know?

On the inbound side; we don’t have many fields on the vendor card and purchase order that is actually important for using warehouse functionality and basically here on the vendor cards. It’s the location code that you can set up which will be default location code when creating purchase orders for this vendor.

This is what happens in the video

If you use the planning worksheets, of course, the location code will follow the demand and be created according to the demand, but the location codes control everything about how to handle documents in your warehouse, and it could be default setup on the vendor and then it applies to the purchase order where it comes into the shipping and payment tab where you can change it. But all the other fields on the vendor card in the purchase order is more less not related to the warehouse functionality.

So it’s the location code that handles everything, and in other videos, we will show you all the differences on the location set up you can use per location.
