Lance:

As additional information, if you have MXA R4, when a line item is received
complete, MAPICS will show the line item closed.  To close the purchase
order, there is an option on the close and purge purchase order to close the
purchase order.  So in MAPICS there can be three closed on the PO, the line
item receipt, the invoice for the line item and the PO itself.

If you are using the MAPICS debit memo function this may impact the closing
procedure on the PO if your have set the resupply flag to "YES".

Hope this is helpful.
