The Cost Matrix displays all the selected items and possible vendors for a purchase order. Vendors are ordered from the highest to least number of items offered within the current order.
Note: The vendor listed first within the Vendors table of the Items node will be starred as the preferred vendor.
Click on a cell with a price to select it as the vendor for the item within the order. Click Create Purchase Orders to create orders for each of the selected vendors.
Note: Pending orders are divided amongst vendors. When adjusting an existing order, new orders are created for additional vendors and items are added to pending vendor orders. Only one order for each vendor can be pending and only one of an item type can be in any order.
