    We are new to Lawson/Infor and in purchasing we need to be able to run reports of all confirmed purchase orders. Is there a way to do this?

    Do you mean PO's confirmed by the vendor via EDI (PO122)? If you have the system process the confirmation then you can set up the ProcessFlow Service EDIPOAckNotify to notify the Buyer.

    We used McKesson and there was a box that the buyer could check off once they received a confirmation from the vendor and we were able to run what we called OPEN PO REPORT and PO VIEWER report and this would let us know of any purchase orders that still needed to be confirmed.  

    Now we have to go into every po created just to look for comments to see if the purchase order made it to the vendor. The other reason we are doing this is because almost every order we place the "Purchase From is set to E01, and the HEADER is set on PO ISSUE METHOD of EDI or FAX and none of our orders are getting to the vendor. No one seems to know what is causing our orders to get Hung up.

    There's no report that I know of that will show that a PO has been confirmed outside of EDI. I've found it very difficult to run reports/queries from those comment tables. Is this one particular vendor? If the POs are being transmitted via EDI you should be able to trace the transmission with your VAN (GHX, GXS, Sterling, etc.) to see if they are receiving the PO and forwarding it on to the vendor. If the PO is faxed and failing you should be able to see the failures (no answer, busy, etc.) on the fax integrator. Verify the fax number is correct with the vendor. Occasionally we've had faxes that continue to fail even after we've verified we have the correct fax number. In those cases we try to send via email.
