Purchase Money Payment

Purchase Money Payment Overview

The Purchase Money Payment (PMP) is the fifth item in the Job Projects Costs Data Entry menu, and is identical to the Purchase Money Payment entry from Inventory Purchases menu.

A Purchase Money Payment is used to enter the Purchase Money Payment of stock from suppliers not set up as a Vendor within your SapphireOne system.

Any data entry field that has a light blue background is a linked data entry field. If you do not know the exact ID to enter, the user may replace some or all of the characters with the @ or ? symbols. SapphireOne will then display a much shorter list for the user to select the correct ID from. For example,if the user enters K@ SapphireOne will display all records beginning with K.

When a data entry field heading is underlined this indicates that once an ID has been entered the user may then click on the underlined heading. SapphireOne will then do a specific query for the ID as entered and display a list with just the single item in it. The user may then view or modify the item as normal.
