Enter a Receipt for Changed or Rolled Purchase Order in NUFinancials

This Aid walks a User through the process of entering Receipts for changed or rolled Purchase Orders.

You can only enter or create receipts for changed or rolled purchase orders using Add/Update Receipts:

  • Changed POs or change orders are purchase orders that were changed through the Purchase Order Change.
  • Rolled POs are purchase orders that were moved to the next fiscal year in order to remain open.

If a receipt has previously been entered through My Requisitions for a purchase order that has been changed or rolled, new receipts have to be entered by using Add/Update Receipts.
