Auto Generate PO from SO

Is there a catch to selecting the "Use Back Ordered Quantity" on the selection screen?  I would think this would populate the PO with the BO quantities on the SO correct?  I am populating the Back Order qty while the SO is still a Standard Order.  Another quirk I am noticing is when I try to group a few SO's together and the qty on hand is less than the ordered quantity the auto generation does not take into account of the quantities that are on previous orders.  My example is the INV7-4XL LON, the PO is calling to order 15 when it should only order 10, I have the option to order "Sales Order Qty" on?

  • Not finding any helpful information besides it might have something to do with not invoicing the SO?  I read the help file but it doesn't explain the logical steps Sage goes through to get the PO qty.  This is my test process which shouldn't have the first line in my opinion because the BO qty is 0 for that item.

    I tried an example and gave this product a qty of 12 on hand, then typed two sales orders for it, one for qty 6 and the second for 10.  We should only have to order 4 to make the difference but, the report is calling to order 14.  Is there a way around this to get correct quantities?
