Infor LN & Baan Tip & Tricks for OPERATIONS: Best Practices for Purchase Order Archiving / Deleting

 Here are some best practices to follow if you are considering archiving or deleting purchase order data:

  • If Financials is implemented, we recommend that you do not delete order data in a fiscal year that has not yet been fully closed. This is because the GRINYA process uses information that would be deleted by this action. For best results, check whether the logistical balance for non-invoiced receipts matches the balance of the GRINYA accounts for the periods up to which you want to delete purchase order data.
  • When a purchase order is canceled, you can only delete the purchase order and the related tables. If only a purchase order line is canceled, the line can be deleted and archived.
  • Purchase contracts must be archived before purchase orders can be archived.

You cannot delete a purchase order (line) if:

  • The linked warehouse order is closed but cannot be removed.
  • The purchase order is linked to a PCS project that is not yet archived. When the PCS project is archived, the purchase data is also archived and you can delete the purchase order.
  • A consignment replenishment order is not yet consumed completely.
  • The invoice is yet to be completely matched and approved.
  • The invoice amount is not yet inserted as turnover history.
  • The sales order or service order that's linked to the purchase order line, and for which an internal invoice must be sent from the purchas office to the sales office or service office, is not yet invoiced. In this case, you cannot delete the purchase order line before the sales order or service order is invoiced.
