Assigning a Preferred Vendor to a Line Item Code

Note: If you've upgraded from aACE 4, please note that "categories" are now referred to as "line item codes".

 

To streamline purchasing, you can specify a preferred vendor for each line item code. When you add items to a PO that doesn't have the vendor specified yet, the first LIC that has a preferred vendor will automatically enter that company for the Vendor field. 

  1. Navigate from Menu > Order Setup > Line Item Codes.
  2. Use the Quick Search bar to locate the desired line item code.
  3. Navigate to the Vendors tab, then click Edit.
  4. Click the Search icon () and use the Company Selector dialog to locate and select the desired vendor.
  5. Mark the flag for Preferred.
    Note: When you assign vendors to an LIC, you can also enter vendor-specific product codes, descriptions, unit costs, lead times, etc.
  6. Click Save.
