Can you link an SO line to an already created drop-ship PO?

On a Sales Order, I am able to set an item as mark for PO and create a drop ship PO that is linked to the SO line.


Am I able to go backwards - create a drop ship PO (manually, not through the SO) and then link back to the SO?

Hi @jwarren 

Yes, if a user creates a Drop-Ship PO manually, the Status will be set to ‘Awaiting Link’.

Then when a Sales Order is created, in the line item the user can select the Mark for PO checkbox, select PO Source ‘Drop Ship’, then click PO Link, and the Drop Ship PO created previously is available to link to the Sales Order.

Hey Hannah,


When I do this, the PO does not appear in the PO link pop-up box despite:

  • Same Vendor
  • Same Warehouse
  • Same PO source
  • The PO is drop ship and in Awaiting Link status.

Thank you for that info!

I previously tested this on 2022R2, and it was working as it should.

However I have now tested on both 2021R2 and 2021R1, and I have found that this is not working as I described above.

Please create a case with the Product Support Team so that we can investigate this further.

Thanks again!

Good morning,

Thank you

@EvanG , as we can see in the @jwarren‘s system - everything works fine. 

Please check that Ship To on the Shipping tab of the PO matches to the Customer from SO and PO Source and Vendor match with Type and Vendor from PO.

If you still have this issue - please create a case and we will check your system.
