If you have items left on Purchase Orders that will not be received, you are easily able to remove them from the order so the original Purchase Order will no longer show up on your list. Here is a short video to show you how this works:

Here are the steps to remove a back-ordered item:
1) Go to Inventory > Purchasing, click the check-box for Back Ordered, and then click on the PO # original Purchase Order you are working with.
2) You will see all of the original items from the order, including those already received. Click the Continue Receiving button.
3) There are three easy steps to remove each line item you know you won't be receiving. 1 - Set the Now quantity to 0. 2 - Check the No BO checkbox. 3 - Check the Now checkbox. You will see the Now quantity and the Total fields highlight in red, indicating the item has been zeroed out. PLEASE NOTE: Checking the master-toggle checkbox above the column for 'Now' will not result in highlighting the fields in red, it will actually repopulate the quantity and total data. You know the line item will be removed when you see the Quantity and Total fields highlighted in red.
4) Click the Complete button. If you removed all the line items in the order, it will no longer appear in your list of back-ordered Purchase Orders. If there are still some items you are waiting to receive, they will be the only ones that repopulate when you open the order to continue receiving in the future.
