Re: Title changes and Voyager processes redhead 02 Apr 2004 12:45 UTC

With Voyager, you must approve a Purchase Order to attach to an invoice. Once
the PO is approved you can not make changes.  Because of this (and other
things) we only have one serial title on a PO.

When we discover a title change, a new PO is copied from the old one, the new
line item is added and the old one deleted.  The new serials check-in
component is added to that PO and then the old one deleted from the old PO
before completing the old PO.

For more information see
The graphics are out of date, but the basic information is the same.
