Create Purchase Documents for G/L Accounts and Components
Instead of using a dummy item number when an item does not exist when demand is created, a purchase quote (for open Document BOM lines), purchase order or requisition line can be created against a G/L account or a component. This functionality is available from a Construction Order line or Document BOM but is typically used from the Construction Orders for handling the purchasing of long lead time items.
On the Actions menu (and the Lines FastTab of the Construction Order), the Purch. G/L Acc./Item function allows you to create either a Requisition Line, Purchase Quote, or a Purchase Order for a line type = G/L Account or Item.
If more than one line is selected for processing, it is not possible to choose which document should be created (Purchase Quote/Purchase Order/Requisition Line) – only Requisition Lines will be created. The G/L Account must have a vendor assigned in the Vendor No. field on the Purchase FastTab of G/L Account Card page.
Additionally, a check prevents the creation of Purchase Quotes for released Document BOM lines because Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central cannot create a reservation to a Purchase Quote. Therefore, this check ensures that the Document BOM line will not create any other demand while a purchase quote has been created against it.
Once a purchase document is created for a Document BOM/Construction Order line, no changes can be made to the line, even after posting. If you need to delete the Document BOM/Construction Order line, warning and question messages open.
If you have the integration with Advanced Manufacturing Suite (AMS), Line Text that is linked to the Document BOM/Construction Order line is also copied to the purchase order line. For more information, see Text in document BOMs and Text in construction order line.
