This Extended Solution to the standard MAS 90 MAS 200 Purchase Order module allows the user to select one of six types of comment postings to the Job Cost transaction detail file. It is designed to be used with Extended Solution JC-1005: Vendor Name on Job Cost Transaction Report and JC-1009: Full Item Descriptions. Expanded Item Codes cannot be used with this Extended Solution.


Before installing any Extended Solution, please verify that the version level referenced on your installation file is the same version level as your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) installation. (For more information please call (800) 425-9843). It is recommended to have a complete and tested backup prior to installing any application on your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) platform.
