The Created by and Creation date columns in the All Purchases grid show creation details of the purchase order record, not creation details of the purchase order line (aka "purchase") record.


The data model for how purchase data is stored involves two types of records:

  • purchase order line (aka "purchase") record which represents a quantity of a particular item being purchased
  • purchase order record which groups a set of purchase order lines into a single purchase identified by a purchase order number, date and vendor.

The Created by and Creation date columns in the All Purchases grid show details associated with the purchase order record, while the creation details on the history tab when viewing a purchase record show details associated with the purchase order line record.

This is inconsistent with information in the online help which indicates that the values displayed in these two locations should be the same.
