I have 2 quantities ordered on my PO but the system is not allowing me to receive items due to error saying “The purchase order does not contain any items to be received.”

Check your PO history and make sure that you haven’t already processed a receipt for the PO

I am getting this same error, yet my PO History is blank.  the items are non-stock. could that be the reason?

@Girliegatch Yes, for the Non-Stock items we will get this issue if the Non-Stock item NOT marked as “Required Receipt”.

Fyi, I found if you check the box in PO Preferences, “Process Service lines from Normal Purchase Orders via Purchase Receipts”, then it works even if the non-stock item is not marked as “Require Receipt”.
