    We create the vast majority of our Purchase Orders out of PO23.  We are wondering how others manage this; do they build the majority of their purchase orders our of PO100?  There is a stigma by those involved with the onboarding at our organization that the PO23 was referred to as the “scum bucket” and only the trash requisitions end up there.  At the beginning of our Lawson experience PO100 was used some but over time we have gone to almost all PO23 building of POs from requisitions.

    Most of our POs are generated via PO100 - we monitor the stat monthly (Who created the PO header) and we are typically at 92 or 93% PO100. And I would say most of the others are some sort of high dollar or project that got manual signatures on a contract or things that were in error and got stuck.

    Are you changing information to get it to a PO? That would be the only reason we'd isolate something and leave it on the pointerfac (PO23) to deal with manually.

    Kat, do you have the PO100 running under a different user id from your buyers? I ask because that's an interesting stat you're collecting, but I have PO100 jobs scheduled to run under each buyer's user id so I wonder how I would determine if the PO was created by PO100 vs out of PO23.
