About Generating PO Positions

*Note: Only users with Door Frame Catalog Maintenance security permissions can generate PO positions.

Generating PO positions is a required procedure in the catalog building process and is completed in the Mfg Attributes window or Preps window. Generating PO positions tells the software to properly format and position preps, parts, and attributes on purchase orders for user-maintained products. Always generate PO positions after creating or updating an user-maintained catalogs. If you do not generate PO positions after an update, the preps, parts, or attributes from the products will not properly populate on a purchase order. For catalogs containing both door and frame products, you must generate PO positions for each purchase order type. The three delimiter options for PO positions are space, semi-colon, or carriage return. Carriage return is a new line of text.
