10) Purchase Orders Number List

WIN$ will return a list of purchase order numbers matching the first three characters “1PM.” The “1PM” is also referred to as the search criterion.

Note that the “Purchase Orders” list includes a column of zero values (“0000000000”). A non-zero value in this column represents a change order.

The “PO Status” column that is shown in the figure below contains “C” and “Y” values. The “C” status indicates the purchase order is closed. The “Y” status indicates the purchase order is open.

The “Purchase Orders” list has scroll bars which will allow you to scroll through the list of purchase order numbers that WIN$ returned. When you find the purchase order number you are looking for, you can select it by double clicking on it or by clicking on it once and then clicking on the “OK” button.

Experimenting on your own:

You can sort the information by any column on this screen using the following technique:

  • Select the column you want to sort on.
  • Click on the “Sort” button.
  • Click on the “Sort” button again to sort in reverse order (the first sort is ascending, the second sort is descending).
  • You can sort by purchase order number, the default.
  • You can also sort by vendor name, “PO status” and by “Gross” amount.
