Approve a purchase order
Approving a purchase order allows you to lock the purchase order, so that no further changes can be made. If necessary, the order can still be unlocked to allow making changes again.
- In the PO # dialog box, click the Purchase Order ribbon tab.
- On the menu, select Approve Purchase Order.
- To confirm approving and locking the purchase order, click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.
The text at the top of the PO # dialog box now shows that the purchase order has been approved and locked, and the name of the user who approved and locked the purchase order.
Note that purchase orders are also locked if you export them.
