Maybe I'm real dense on this....but your comment about on-hand/on-order
doesn't at all relate to orders received from a customer. These concepts
relate to what you are buying from your supplier.

Now, if you receive a PO from a customer, you would fulfill the order by
first checking inventory availability, allocating available inventory to the
customer order, creating a pick-list, shipper, etc., decrementing inventory,
inputting any ship-adjusts to account for actual inventory being out of sync
with your inventory database, creating an invoice back to the customer, and
then applying payment to the open receivable.

So, my point re QB....can it **receive** a PO from a customer and then take
care all of the above tasks required for the PO-to-Payment process including
the necessary documents (ideally relevant to our discussion, electronic
business messages in a standard format)?

It doesn't appear to be that QB is quite there on this entire process. And
of course, if you're in the service business, fergettaboutit!

"QuickBooks shows you what's on hand and what's on order. Inventory reports
show you stock status, open purchase orders and more, all at-a-glance."

Taken from:


As you can see from that, it does allow "you" to create PO you have
"received from your customers"!!! I understand this it is not what service
oriented business need. However, it does show that the statement made by MR
is false.
