Klaus, 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: http://www.quickbooks.com/products/premier/features-all.html 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.
