About the PM Material Orders Form
Use this form to edit header and item detail for material orders created in PM Material Detail.
You can open this form from the PM module Programs folder or by selectingin PM Material Detail.
Material order information (header and item) is added automatically to this form when material order numbers are assigned (manually or by initialization) to material detail in PM Material Detail (recommended method). However, you can add material orders manually in this form as necessary.
Non-Interfaced / Interfaced Items
Material detail records entered in PM Material Detail (with a Material Type of M-Material Order) that are assigned a material order/item number are automatically set up as items on this tab. You can also enter new material order items; items entered directly in the grid will update the PM Material Detail file.
As you enter material order items, information pertaining to the material and specified phase displays above the grid, including the original phase estimate information and unit cost information for the standard, purchase, and sales units of measure.
When you are ready to interface a material order item, select the Send check box. All items with this flag selected are included when you interface the material order (in PM Interface). Once interfaced, items are moved to the Interfaced Items tab and can only be edited using IN Material Order Entry.
