    Supplier Part Number

    721046
      Hello,

      We would like to capture the "Supplier Part Number" on all purchasing documents that are sent out to the suppliers. I had initially recommended we use the "Manufacturer's Part Number" screen but one of my colleagues stated that this will be hardcoding a specific part number to an item. We still use this for items that have single manufacturer's and hence unique part numbers. However for items that have multiple suppliers who each have their unique part numbers; it was recommended that this information be captured as vendor reference in the approved vendor tables. I would like to know if this is the best way to do it and if it is then, can an inventory user enter this information or should it be done by a backend office.

      Thanks!
