Interpreting FOIDOCH - Purchase Orders
Situation: Only my requisition number is displayed, and the Status Field is blank. Conclusion: Your Requisition has not been approved (only approved Requisitions are forwarded to Purchasing).
Situation: Only my requisition number is displayed, and the Status Field says "A". Conclusion: Your requisition has been approved and forwarded to Purchasing, but they have yet to assign it a Purchase Order (PO) number.
Situation: A PO number is displayed, but the Status Field is blank. Conclusion: Your PO is in process in Purchasing. If it had been completed and sent to the vendor, an "A" would appear in the Status Field next to the PO number.
Situation: A number appears in the Receiver Field, accompanied by a "C" in the Status Field. Conclusion: Your items have been received, and your order is Complete (all items on the order have been received). This approach can be used on any of the fields appearing on the FOIDOCH screen.
