Why does the Auto Purchasing reports not list the part, or parts, that you are expecting? The following list describes the reasons why a part record would not show up when running the Auto Purchasing reports:

  • Is the Maximum quantity greater than zero?
  • Is the Reorder point greater than zero?
  • Does the part record have the Auto-Purchasing flag checked?
  • Does the part record have a preferred vendor record?
  • Is the part currently on an open purchase order?
  • Is the current request quantity plus the current order quantity plus the current on-hand quantity equal to, or greater than the Maximum quantity?

If you checked all the above scenarios and still are unable to determine why the part record is not listed on the Auto Purchasing reports, please contact support@somax.com.
