Purchase order price doesn't match cost in system

Hey I was wondering if anyone knows why the costs in Purchase Order entry don't always match up to the costs in the system under Price Check or Cards/Inventory/Item. And is there a way to sync these up?  DQFanSurvey

    In addition to Richard and Joseph's points, there are a few other sneaky areas where the default PO cost behavior can be configured:  PSTL's  POP Cost Defaulter (option to pull from Current Cost or Standard Cost) and also in PO Setup > Options if using PO Generator.

    Like Richard said, the PO costs will look at the last cost (or current cost) when entering items on a new PO.

    The other prices in the inventory items (Inventory > Cards > Price List) are the selling prices. These are used in sales orders, back orders, invoices, returns.

    There are add-ons out there to specifically let you enter the costs from your vendors and will integrate with Purchase Order Processing/PO Generator.

    The cost on the PO will pull from the last originating cost for the vendor on the PO. You will find this on the item/vendor card.
