Free Text Costs from SOP pull through onto PO

When entering a free text item on a SOP and then creating an PO from that sale, the costs dont pull through so have to be retyped in - also if you amend a stock item cost on a sale it reverts back on the PO

    Am I missing something here? You are creating linked back-to-back purchase orders for free-text items? I thought you could only do that for standard item lines.

    How does it know the supplier, let alone the cost?

    Or are you saying you want the free text lines to be copied from the sales order to the purchase order? If so, what happens when there are multiple items from different suppliers on the sales order - which supplier gets the free-text lines? Or maybe the free-text lines aren't needed on the purchase order. How about comment lines?

    Please give a bit more detail! But to be honest, I don't see this ever being implemented as Generate Purchase Orders has no functionality for free-text or comment lines.
