PO Error: Quantity must be greater than 0
I have a multi line PO and want to receive only one line on the PO.
When I load the PO to the receipt all lines are added with a default qty of 0.
After receiving the one line I receive this error for the other lines: PO Error: Quantity must be greater than 0
I feel I am missing something really simple but can't find what setting forces a receipt qty to be greater than 0. Otherwise to process a PO receipt I would need to delete all the lines where no qty is being received.
That just doesn't seem right.
I seem to remember you just have to delete the zero line quantities (the PO lines not being receipted at this time) and then it can be released.
Thank you for your responses.
That's what I found needed to done. However, I was hoping there was a more user friendly no work option as there is in the other ERP I have worked with.
On a 20 or 30 line PO the last thing I want to have to tell the user is they need to delete all the rows they are not receiving. That's tedious and in my opinion an unnecessary step.
When receiving just one line, I find it makes more sense to start with a clean Purchase Receipt then click Add PO Line.
Thanks for your thoughts Kimberly.
That approach makes sense for a single line. What I am really looking at is finding the best way to handle receiving 10 lines on a 30 line PO.
Needing to delete 20 lines or individually add 10 lines to the receipt makes me feel like the software is not helping me do the job faster and easier.
Given the lack of other responses I am going to conclude this is a 'feature' of Acumatica. Unfortunately, it's one that detracts from an otherwise very user friendly system. I was hoping this was just me not understanding how to work with the software.
I think you will find that, like with the Add Stock Item box (which I know you may not be using, but the behavior of the function is similar), it is very simple to click the lines you want to receive (You do not have to add literally just one PO Line). You also have the ability to sort and filter your columns if you wish to group your targeted lines before selecting them.
Does that help?
Thanks for the suggestion Kimberly.
Unfortunately, I still believe this is additional work that shouldn't be necessary. To me, the current functionality detracts from an otherwise very user-friendly software.
