INTRODUCTION

This article describes why a purchase order status changes to Change Order and why the value in the Revision field increases in Purchase Order Processing in Microsoft Dynamics GP and in Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains 8.0.

MORE INFORMATION

A purchase order status only changes to Change Order when the purchase order has a status of Released .

If you delete a line item from a released purchase order, the status does not change to Change Order . Additionally, the value in the Revision field does not increase.

Only a purchase order with a status of Released tracks revision changes. For example, if you add a new line item to a released purchase order, the purchase order status changes to Change Order .

Changes to line items are not tracked unless you first print the purchase order to change the status back to Released .
