Purchase Order List

CMMS Purchase Order List

The COGZ Computerized Maintenance Management Purchase Order List provides information on the Purchase Order Number, Vendor Code, Vendor Name, Phone Number, Invoice Number, Due Date, and the Date Ordered. Any overdue purchase order will have the Due Date highlighted in red. Also, if the purchase order has not been printed the PO Number will appear in red.

Show Completed: This feature is available in the COGZ  Computerized Maintenance Management Optional Purchase Order Module. When this box is checked, only completed purchase orders will be displayed in the Purchase Order List. Using this function you can reopen completed purchase orders, allowing you to review and print them. During default operation only open purchase orders are displayed in the Purchase Order List.


To change the status of a completed purchase order and have it displayed in the active list, simply double click on the purchase order you would like to change. This will allow you to override its completed status.

CMMS Change Completed Purchase Order Status

Choosing yes will move the Purchase Order from the Completed List to the Active List. No will cancel the change. This function requires security clearance.

Print PO Button: Prints the purchase order that is highlighted. When printing purchase orders a feature in the Optional Inventory Enhancement Module will also allow you to automatically allow you to print Purchase Order Labels.

Logo: When printing Purchase Orders you may choose to print your company’s logo in the upper left hand corner of the Purchase Order. The logo must be a 1” high x 3” wide Windows bitmap file. The file may be bigger than 1”x 3” as long as it has a ratio of 1:3 so as not to distort the image during the shrinking process. To add your logo, manually enter a bitmap file of your company’s logo in the Logo File field in the System Defaults PO Setup tab. Make sure this file is located in your COGZ directory. You may also choose to turn off the logo completely. To do so, just delete the file name located in the PO Setup tab.


PO Rec Button: This button also prints the highlighted purchase order, but also contains information about how many items have already been received.

The parameters for the purchase orders can be adjusted on the PO Setup tab of the System Defaults form. This form is located under the Setup menu. Information such as the message that appears on the top of the purchase order, bottom PO note, tax rate, last PO number, etc can be altered there.
