Updated: October 16, 2011

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

A purchase release order is a purchase order that is released from an existing purchase agreement. When you release order lines from a purchase agreement, the commitment terms specified in the purchase agreement are applied to the purchase order.

NoteNote

If you have selected the Public sector configuration key, you can create a purchase agreement classification that requires direct invoices and prevents release orders from being created for purchase agreements that use the classification. For more information, see Agreement classification (form).

This topic describes two different procedures for creating purchase release orders.

NoteNote

You can only create a release order from purchase agreements with a status of Effective.

Note Note

This procedure can only be used when you have a purchase agreement with commitments for a quantity. Only commitments of the Product quantity commitment type are available in the Create a new release order form. To create a purchase release order from commitments of the Product value commitment type, you must first create a purchase order, and then you can add purchase order lines for these items. Microsoft Dynamics AX then finds the corresponding commitment and releases from the commitment.

  1. Click Procurement and sourcing > Common > Purchase orders > Purchase agreements.

    –or–

    Click Accounts payable > Common > Purchase orders > Purchase agreements.

    This opens the Purchase agreements list page.

  2. Select the purchase agreement that you want to release from. You can also open the Purchase agreements form for the purchase agreement by double-clicking the purchase agreement in the list.

  3. On the Action Pane, click Release order. This opens the Create a new release order form.

  4. In the Purchase quantity field, enter a purchase quantity.

    NoteNote

    If the Max is enforced check box is selected for the corresponding purchase agreement line, the purchase quantity cannot exceed the remaining quantity of the commitment in the purchase agreement.

    NoteNote

    If you enter a purchase quantity that conflicts with the default order settings for the item, see the Recommended order quantity column for an alternative quantity that complies with the default order settings, and update the purchase quantity accordingly.

  5. In the Delivery date field, enter a delivery date.

    NoteNote

    The delivery date must be in the range that is specified for the commitment by the Effective date and Expiration date fields in the purchase agreement.

  6. Enter product and location dimensions, if they are not already specified.

    NoteNote

    The dimension fields are active and must be specified if the Active check box is selected in the Product dimension groups form.

  7. If you want to specify an alternative delivery address, click the Select a different address button next to the Delivery address field.

  8. Click Create to submit the purchase release order. Submitting the order generates a new purchase order on the All purchase orders list page.

  1. Click Procurement and sourcing > Common > Purchase orders > All purchase orders.

    –or–

    Click Accounts payable > Common > Purchase orders > All purchase orders.

    This opens the All purchase orders list page.
