Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Select the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Go to the tab Document Flow.
  4. Here we can see only the latest Purchase Order Acknowledgement.


Basically it is a confirmation from a supplier to deliver the specified quantities of products at specified price on specified date.

Within this document, the supplier can accept the terms and conditions of the purchase order, propose changes to particular aspects of the purchase order, or reject the purchase order. Buyer can accept or reject the deviations in the purchase order made by the supplier.

In case of more than one purchase order acknowledgement, the latest one shows all the details that are accepted by the buyer. The remaining Purchase order acknowledgements becomes Out-of-date.

So the document flow shows the up-to-date purchase order acknowledgment i.e. the latest PO acknowledgment document.


You can see all the purchase order acknowledgments by following the below path:

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Select the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Select the acknowledged link with respect to the purchase order.
  4. Now you can see all the Purchase order acknowledgements listed for that purchase order.
