Receive Partial PO's in NetSuite

Receive Partial PO and view Qty remaining

Often suppliers fulfill your purchase orders across multiple shipments. When receiving partial against a purchase order you want a bill to be created for the received inventory and the PO to stay open until it has been fully received. That way you can properly recognize inventory and understand what is still in transit from your supplier.
