Item Restrictions

Hi List,

I need some ideas on using Item Restrictions (for suppliers). As far as I
can tell, this is how it works:

1) In the address book under A/P, Purchasing Instr., Item Restrictions
- choose blank, I (include items listed), or E (exclude items listed).
Let's say I choose E.

2) On the same form, go to form exit Item Restrictions and enter in the
items that I want to purchase from this supplier. (FYI - I and E work
backwards. Use E to be able to purchase an item from the supplier; use I to
not be able to purchase an item.)

3) Now, I can only enter purchase orders for the item listed for this
particular supplier. I understand this and it works fine.

The problem is that I can still buy the items I had listed from any other

I need to be able to set something up so that I can only buy item number 123
from supplier XYZ without having to set up item restrictions for every
single supplier in our address book.

Any ideas?
