How do I free text/enter the name of a vendor for a new purchase order?

You can only free text the address of a vendor for a new purchase order if you have the user permission Can use free text for Vendors. By default users are not given this permission and it is recommended that vendor details are maintained in the vendor list instead of allowing free text.

To free text the vendor address you need to:

  1. Click the [New Order] menu option in the Main Menu.


  1. Enter the vendor name in the Vendor field. If you are unable to enter the vendor name then you do not have necessary permissions.
