How to open the Purchase order window
Purchase Order Window - Data Sections
The Purchase Order window has eight distinct Data Sections
When you open the window, Printer’s Plan initializes the Data Sections based on a Purchase Order Template. Here’s how Printer’s Plan selects a template:
- Printer’s Plan selects the Vendor’s Template if a vendor is assigned to the selected Service and the
Vendor’s Template exists, such as PO Vendor103.txt.
- Printer’s Plan selects the Default Template (PO Default.txt) if no vendor is assigned to the selected
Service or the Vendor’s Template does not exist.
- If both steps fail, Printer’s Plan initializes the data as described below.

customize the data that goes into the document.

How to Print Your Logo on Purchase Orders
- On your Printer’s Plan server computer, where PlanData.mdb is located, create a bitmap image. Add your company logo, address, phone to the image. Name the image as LogoPO.bmp.
TIP: Copy and paste your LogoPrint.bmp and rename it.
- Check the Company Logo option. If unchecked or LogoPO.bmp does not exist, your company name and address will be printed.
