Title:Why my PO Number seems to skip randomly?
URL:http://dynamicsgpblogster.blogspot.com/2009/12/why-my-po-number-seems-to-skip-randomly.html
Description:The opening goes something like this:



I upgraded from version X.XX [typically 7.x, 8.x] to Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 and now we are having a problem where the next PO number will sometimes jump back in sequence, often many numbers. What's happening to our PO Numbers?

In my previous article, Why does my next document number change randomly? I gave some insight into why Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 seems to randomly skip document numbers, sometimes backwards. Here is more information on PO Numbers and another method of preventing this behavior.

In Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 Purchase Order Processing module, it is possible that a user may have a purchase order number that is completely different from the next number found in the Purchase Order Processing Setup window. Although the next number for purchase orders is set up in the Purchase Order Processing Setup window, Microsoft Dynamics GP will look for unused PO numbers that precede that number. The system will be able to re-use a purchase order number in the following circumstances:

1. If you are not keeping purchase order history and void a purchase order.
2. If you are not keeping purchase order history and delete a purchase order.
3. If you are keeping purchase order history and remove historical purchase orders.

If PO Numbers lower than the one specified are still available, Microsoft Dynamics GP will use this PO Number instead of the one you have set up.

To resolve this, you can use the Minimum PO/Receipt Number utility from the Professional Services Tools Library (PSTL). This tool will allow you to prevent Purchase Order Processing from defaulting the PO Number or Receipt Number to a number that is previous to the currently set up next PO.

Until next post!
