PO Change Orders


  • Purchase Order Change Orders allow you to update an order after it has been converted from a Requisition to a Purchase Order. A PO cannot be changed if it is already closed (Status 0 – Closed).
  • After a PO Change Order is approved, the PO number will end in a -1, indicating that there is one change order.

  2. Type in the PO number that needs updating.

  3. Click Accept. The PO will load.

  4. To change the General Commodity, Description, Vendor, or Shipping Details:
    1. Click UPDATE.
