About the PO Initialization Form

Use this form to create purchase orders from requisition lines.

The initialization process selects requisition lines based on specified criteria, and then creates a PO batch. The PO batch may contain one or more PO headers, each with one or more PO items. Requisition lines with the same vendor and shipping address will be grouped together on the same PO; however, requisition lines are not grouped together on purchase order items—each requisition line will create one purchase order item.

Requisition lines will only be initialized onto a purchase order if they meet the specified criteria and have a Approved for Purchase line status (PO Requisition ReviewerRQ Lines tab Line Status field).
