Updating the Pricing to a Part Line

Updated on May 2, 2024

Suppliers may indicate that the pricing for a part line is incorrect and require a revised PO with the correct pricing before they can process the order.  Invoices can also indicate pricing that is different from the pricing on the PO and adjustments are needed before the invoice can be processed.

Unable to Adjust Price for a Part Line

If a user is unable to update the price for a part line, locate the Qty field of the line:

Above the Qty field, Prendio will indicate if a receipt (packing slip or proxy packing slip) has been processed for the line in order to prepare the line for payment.  If the Rcvd: number is not 0, a receipt or multiple receipts have been processed for the line.

In the example below, a user is unable to adjust the Unit Price as there has been a receipt (Rcvd:2.00) processed against the line:

 

To enable the Unit Price to be adjusted, a user with the Receiver and/or Accounts Payable role(s) must remove the receipt.  For more information, please visit: Removing a Receipt in Order to Make Adjustments to the PO

After the receipt(s) have been removed from the line, the Rcvd: note above the Qty field will update to 0.00:

 

The Unit Price can be updated.  After the price is updated, the user can notify the Receiver re-process the packing slip back into a Receipt.
