Determining Backorders

There are several ways for you to determine what is on backorder:

  • Double click a sales/purchase order and review the BackOrder column;
  • The Product and Customer/Supplier Enquiries are useful for ad hoc enquiries on particular products, customers or suppliers;
  • The Stock Enquiry will show the stock status (including on-order and backorders) for a specified product;
  • The Backorder Summary reports (in the Reports menu) can be done for all backordered products, or for selected product or customers. These reports can also show the effect of any unposted invoices;
  • The Committed Stock report will show the current effective stock based on outstanding sales and purchase orders (and optionally unposted invoices).
