“Finalize” button on the purchase order AX2012

Dear all:

Hope you are doing very well.

What is the purpose of the “Finalize” button on the purchase order , this button is still enable after invoicing , is this button has financial effect when user click it after invoicing or it is for approval purposes only??

Please advice

After which no updates can be made to the purchase order.

Thanks Kranthi for your replay.[:)]


Finalizing the purchase order requires all lines to be either canceled or invoiced. After a purchase order has been finalized, you can no longer change the purchase order. Finalize the purchase order to liquidate budget reservations and any encumbrance that is not yet relieved in general ledger.

As the “Finalize” word complete or conclude . In AX Purchase Orders it means no more versions and changes allowed now.
