This report shows details of purchase orders made during a given period of time and, optionally, the status of the invoice. The user can see all products ordered during the period. However, it will not include Purchase Orders cloned via the Clone (Keep PO) option. Purchase orders without stock items (service purchases, purchases with only additional costs) are not shown on this report.

I have generated the Purchase Order Details Report. We have received and gotten billed by the supplier already but the ‘Status’ is showing ‘Receiving’ as the full PO has not been received/billed. Is there a way to generate a report that shows the ‘Status’ and ‘Invoice Status’ columns, by SKU per PO instead of by PO?

Please run the Pending Purchase Order Report to see if a purchase order has been authorised but the invoice for ordered items has not been processed yet and/or stock is not received. You may also check the Stock Received vs Invoice report which compares stock received vs items invoiced. You can see what has been received but not invoiced or what has been invoiced but not received. You can view the Sale Order Details Report, and it will show if items were already invoiced or not yet. 

We have a number of purchase orders that were voided and subsequently recreated under the same PO number using the Keep Order# function. However, when running the Purchase Order Details report the data for these new purchase orders (under the same PO number that was also voided) do not appear. The details through the normal order screen look fine. We want the report to match our order details and not show empty data because of the voiding.

The 'Keep order#' PO cloning is basically used to receive remaining goods from a specific PO and these goods must be receivable (Stock items). But since you have already voided the PO, it won't reflect correctly. You will have to use the "New order#" option in your case to fulfil your need. You can try cloning the PO before voiding so that it will reflect correctly. However, in your case, you will need to raise new PO numbers for all of the orders that have been voided.

When I output the purchase order details report, it mentions that some of these products have zero cost and the purchase order is empty, despite the purchase order having an SKU and cost already input. Why is it so?

This is most likely due to having selected Blind Receipt during the purchase task. When you use the Blind Receipt option, you basically skip the Order section and proceed with either Invoicing or Stock Receiving depending on the input method used, so the Order details are empty. You can either use the Purchase Invoice Details report instead or Undo the purchase order, deselect Blind Receipt and fill in the Order tab before reauthorising the purchase task. 

Can you please tell me why PO-XXXX is missing from this report?

Usually, this is an issue with the date filters. By default the date filter is set to 'Last Month', however, if you are part-way through the next month, this may miss some recent POs. Try setting the reporting period to 'Last 30 days' or setting a custom date range instead. Missing entries can also be caused by cache problems. Try clearing your cache and refreshing to see if the issue persists.

How can I see if an item was included on a purchase order but was not received or invoiced (for example, because of a split order)?  

Try the Purchase Order vs Invoice report or Stock Received vs Invoice report to analyse these quantities.
