Purchase Order Description Field

When creating a Purchase order the Description field in the header does not come over to the Receipt screen.  It does flow over to the AP Bill screen.  Logic should be the same as the Sales order where the header description flows from Sales Order to Shipment to Invoice.

I noticed your idea has been entered to the Ideas section of this community, one year ago with very few votes. The Idea poster noted that the absence of PO Receipt Description field in the header of PO Receipts causes subsequent IN batches and GL Transactions to have blank Description also.

@pfield2021 From our of the box Purchase Receipt (ScreenId=PO302000) does not have Description field. As on this type of document the Vendor Ref. Nbr is important.

You can customize and add the field to the POReceipt Table and copy the value from PO when being created.

However, it is a good candidate for future considerations and you can add it to product Ideas:

I tested on a 2023r1 and the field does go to the AP bill, did not look at batches and that info.  I voted it up.  Might have to wait for the next versions where we can add fields with the UI easily?
