Feature - Support Negative PO Line Item Unit Cost

Release Date; 5/25/2018

It has been suggested that if we can enter a negative unit cost for a Purchase Order Line Item, then we can use it to represent deposits paid on the purchase order, which would be very helpful.  We did an internal test of this idea and found that this concept will work from PO to AP.  There are a few areas where it does not work correctly, but mostly this is just the printing or screen display that omits the negative sign.  This includes the following areas:
  1. PO Line Item Screen F5 Window
  2. Purchase Order Printing
  3. PO Warehouse Receiving Edit List
  4. PO Warehouse Receiving Posting Journal
  5. PO Order Inquiry
  6. PO Order Inquiry Drill Down
  7. PO Revision Audit Inquiry
The Purchase Order Printing change applies to Elliott standard PO printing only.  We are not supporting DYO PO to print negative line item costs at this time.
