Purchase Order Line Items
I'm trying to understand how Purchase Order Line Items are designed to work. The Line Item Name being a unique value (can't use a name more than 1 time) really prevents me from using Line Items at all. Can someone please explain what the intention is to having this field be unique? If I have to enter a unique name for every single Line Item I add over the life of all Purchase Orders this causes a number of distinct problems. How do I ever order the same line item twice when the price is different, for example? How do I have the same line item multiple times on a single purchase order, but with different cost centers?
I guess I'm wondering what did Cireson envision as the use case when creating this feature to work this way?
AM seems to does this in general. Why is the primary key of any table not a hidden id number, so that any user definable fields in a form can contain duplicate information? Especially a Name field. There are many many reasons for a name to not be unique.
