GRNI (Accrued purchases) Report

In the U.K., a report to show Goods Received Not Invoiced (GRNI) seems to be a common requirement.

‘Nothing happens’ when posting a Purchase order product receipt

I’ve encountered a problem when posting a product receipt on a purchase order that you need to see to believe. For this reason, I’ve recorded a video which shows the problem and the cause.
