Create QuickBooks Purchase Order


Open Create Purchase Order Form


  1. Open QuickBooks and login to your company (.QBW) file. This is not required but speed is greatly improved when QuickBooks is open.
  2. Open the Project Editor for the Project that contains equipment for which you want to create a Purchase Order in QuickBooks.
  3. Select the products you want to add to the Purchase Order. You can use the Quick Filter button to find filter down to a particular Manufacturer, for example.




  1. Click the QuickBooks tab then click the Create button in the Purchase Order section of the ribbon. You can choose to create a Purchase Order for just the selected Items in your grid or you can choose all Items in the Project (probably not likely with a PO, hence step 3).





The Create Purchase Order form will open.

Add to Existing Purchase Order


Instead of step 4 above, you could choose to add the selected Items to an existing Purchase Order in QuickBooks:




This will open a form prompting you select an existing QuickBooks Purchase Order:




Once selected, this form will open allowing you to transfer the items over to an existing PO:



Select/Create Vendor


  1. Use the dropdown menu to select an existing Vendor from your QuickBooks Vendor List, or click the [New] button in the Vendor section of the ribbon:



New Vendor


If the Vendor you wish to use does not exist in QuickBooks, you can create them over in QuickBooks via the [New] button in the Vendor section of the Ribbon:




This will open the Add QuickBooks Vendor form. Fill this out and click [OK]:




The "Additional Info" tab has QuickBooks drop downs that you can set if desired:

Enter Shipping Address


  1. The shipping address fields are pre-populated with your company's address based on your Company Information. You can manually override this address or you can use the dropdown to select an existing Customer:Job from QuickBooks to populate these fields.



Assign QuickBooks Item Numbers


  1. If there are any Items in the Purchase Order that are not assigned to QuickBooks Items, you must do this before the PO will transfer to QuickBooks. If you click the [Create Purchase Order] button prior to doing this, you will be prompted to create new QuickBooks Items, which is exactly what the [Create] button (see below) does.



Your QuickBooks Settings determine how your QuickBooks Items will be created.

Map Button


If you wish to map SIX Items to existing QuickBooks Items, you can do this individually for each Item. See here for Tutorial.

Create Button




If you want to create new QuickBooks Items directly from the SIX Items, click the [Create] button. A form will open with all unassigned Items on the left hand side.

Verify the Purchase Order and Create


  1. Verify that the information is correct on the Create Estimate form and then click the [Create Estimate] button:





Once a Purchase Order has been transferred to QuickBooks, the following fields will be populated for the Items within the Project: Order Status, Order Number, and Ordered Date.




The Order Status that gets populated is determined by your QuickBooks Settings.
