I'd like to point out that our PO's are generated by the Purchasing
Dept. and not by us - we have no say over what goes out - we
don't even get a copy sent to us with the PO # on it.
We do have access to the electronic info. or a form of it, but it's
a cumbersome software that isn't easy to extract info. from.
So, it's the software designers who should allow contact info. to be
put on their form OR the Purchasing depts. should write it in.
Most often, they don't.
