     The Dude Says:

If you need to create multiple POs with similar information, you can utilize the Duplicate feature.

  • If you have clicked on an existing PO from the search results list, click on the Duplicate PO link in the bottom left of the pop up window.
  • If you have just created and saved a PO, click on the down arrow next to the New Purchase Order button at the top right of the screen and select Duplicate PO.
