Until today, I never understood what the Purchase History by Job Report really reported. After a little research I found that the title of that report is a bit misleading. It does not report purchases, but rather it reports Purchase Order lines that have been completely received and invoiced (via AP).
Here’s some examples. For stock item, the amount of a given Purchase Order line will not be reported until the full quantity ordered is both received and invoices. For a Lump Sum amount, the report will only reflect the amount when the whole lump sum amount is fully invoiced by the Vendor.
Any lines of a Purchase Order that are partially invoiced, or partially received, will not be reflected on the report.
I vote that the name of the report be changed to “Completed Purchase History by Job Report”.
