Copy and Paste Parts List in Purchase Orders

 

There is a feature in accounts payable when entering part numbers on purchase orders. Many people use third party software supplied by the vendor to enter purchase information on-line directly to the vendor. We've enabled the system copy and paste function from within the Purchase Order parts grid to copy and paste to/from an outside system.

  

 

This feature is useful for both finding a vendor part number and copying it out of SedonaOffice, or copying the part from vendor software and pasting it directly into the Purchase Order parts grid.
