I have generated the Purchase Order Details Report. We have received and gotten billed by 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 Pending Purchase Order Report to see if a purchase order has been authorized but the invoice for ordered items has not been processed yet and/or stock is not received. You may also check Stock Received vs Invoice report which compares stock received vs invoice. You can see what has been received but not invoiced or what has been invoiced but not received. You can view 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. Details through 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 it wont reflect correctly. You will have to use The "New order#" option in your case to fulfill 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 purchase order is empty, despite in the purchase order having an SKU and cost already input. Why is this?

This is most likely due to have selected Blind Receipt during the purchase task. When you use blind receipt, 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.
