    Hi Ramesh,

    what you can do, is to pay same PO to different suppliers.
    meaning that you match same PO to different invoices from different suppliers.
    You will have to create a relation between po supplier and the supplier(s) from which you will get the invoice.

    But that part, you have mentioned, of "multiple PO's matching with different suppliers" sounds a little bit confusing as Becky has stated...

    With respect

      So you want to have one invoice with multiple POs from multiple suppliers so who is getting paid?   The point of the invoice is to pay the someone based on that invoice so who is getting paid in this case?

        Hi Alex,

        Thanks for correcting. Yes I meant  pay same PO to different suppliers. I will go ahead and create  a relation between po supplier and the supplier(s) and test this.

      Yes I agree you can pay same PO to different suppliers and then when the invoices come in from the various suppliers, you can match the relevant PO lines to the suppliers.  I am sure you are also aware that you can match multiple POs to the same invoice.

      If you are matching recipts, you can match a receipt for Freight, Tax or Miscellaneous charges from a different supplier on the same invoice.  For example, you purchase a computer from Company A for 1,000 USD. Company B ships you the computer for 50 USD. You can match the freight invoice from Company B to the computer receipt from Company A. The matching process associates the freight charge with the cost of the computer, making the total computer cost 1,050 USD.

      When you match an invoice with freight, tax, or miscellaneous charges to a receipt, the total cost of the goods includes those charges. Cost Management uses this cost information. Matching to receipt charges doesn't affect the billed quantities and amounts on the purchase order schedule.

        Hi Becky,

        Thanks for the information. I remember this scenario when I was going thru the user manual and in the fusionhelp topic as well. I will test this scenario as well!!

        Thanks again..
