AP and the Item Master


If we are going to implement the AP module and use the voucher match =
function from Procurement do we need to have the item master populated? =
Thanks for any info. Terry

No. You can create purchase orders and charge them directly to GL accounts. What directs the requirement is the line type and how in interacts with inventory and the GL. These are found n the setup sections of Procurement.

If you look in your documentation, there is an explanation of using stock, non-stock inventory and encumbrance accounting. You should look at these sections to determine your best solution for purchasing and voucher match.

If you want to do just non-stock purchases, using purchase orders with line
type N, you don't need any inventory stuff like item master. Line type S,
stock, would require item master, etc.
