Can a purchase order created with a cash discount generate GL transactions?

I applied a 100% discount to the purchase order, but the discount didn't appear in the Journal Transactions. However, this issue doesn't occur with the Sales order, as the Sales order cash discount is properly reflected in the Journal Transactions.

Hello @pandachan48 ,

Purchase Orders do not post to GL. They do not generate transactions. I’ve attached a document explaining transactions that result from various purchasing screens.

According to the Help, it seems like the Discount Total in the summary area totals the Discounts from the Discounts tab only (not from the lines). The Discounts tab is active when Vendor Discounts feature is installed and enabled.  Do you have Vendor Discounts feature installed & enabled?  If so, what is the total of the discounts on your discounts tab?

And why is the discount amount not displayed in the "Discount Total" column on top?
