In QuickBooks it is possible to receive items on a bill against an existing purchase order and create a link between the two transactions, this is also possible when importing bills when using Zed Axis.
To link a bill to a purchase order in the invoice mapping select the field called Link To Purchase Order
and map that to the column in your import file which contains the Reference number
of the Purchase Order you wish to link to. When the bill is imported a link will be created between the two transactions.
Points to consider:
- The vendor on the purchase order should match the vendor on the bill otherwise QuickBooks will return and error
- The full name of the items on the purchase order should match those on the bill and be in the same order
