whereas inventory orders (Purchase Orders) start C683 or C684.
- If you want the orders arranged according to the delivery dates,
then press F2. This will list all the orders for that part with the most
recently delivered parts first and the oldest deliveries last. This is
usually the more useful option, as it is more realistically chronological;
a tooling order raised last year will, using the first option, still appear
before an order raised last week for inventory parts.
