Purchase Order Processing will allow users to enter non-inventory items on-the-fly. In some cases this can accidentally result in manually entering an item number that is close to an item number that exists in the Inventory Master. The Prevent Use of Non-Inventory Items feature will check that any item number entered exists as an item in your Inventory Master.
Navigation: Tools >> Setup >> Company >> Setup GP PowerPack
Mark the box next to TWK-POP: Prevent Use of Non-Inventory Items, then click DONE.
The feature will be enabled for the current user. Other users must restart their Dynamics GP client to enable this feature.
Using Prevent Use of Non-Inventory Items
When you enter a Vendor Item Number on a PO that has not been set up in Item Vendors Maintenance, you will receive a warning message and the field will be cleared.
A similar message appears when entering Item Numbers (if the option to View Vendor Items is shut off). The same controls will also be applied to the Purchasing Item Detail Entry window.
