    What is recommended as a prefix for Purrchase Orders when using Invoice Imaging?
    Content:

    We are going to enable Invoice Imaging soon and we are planning on using PO as the prefix to the Purchase Order number (like PO12345).  Some documentation seems to say that we shouldn't use PO or NO as the prefix - is this true?  If so, what have others used as their prefix?

      Yes these are reserved words. Lots of customers use their company department initials like for example CRT for your company.  It is recommended that you use 3 characters followed by 6 to 7 numbers is best practice.
