a purchase order with negative quantity

hi all

anybody tell the difference between a purchase order with negative quantity or a return order

In return order, RMA number is mandatory and not applicable on normal PO with negative lines.

Rest from inventory point and financial point, it’s same.


Thanks Pranav

Hi Artata,

A PO with a negative quantity and a Return order, both are the types of Vendor return process i.e return a product to a vendor.

But the difference is that Return order needs Purchase Type as Returned Order with a RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number. But PO with a -ve quantity does not need RMA no and also does not need the Purchase type as Returned order.
