No, you can only confirm a PO once. If you need to make changes after the purchase order is confirmed, please contact the buyer.

Suppliers may edit the following fields during the self-confirmation process:

  • Manufacturer item ID

  • Vendor item number

  • UPC Code

  • Quantity ordered

  • Price

  • Delivery date

To confirm a PO:
Step 1 – Click to open the main menu and choose PO Confirmation
Step 2 – Identify a location – click the drop-down arrow in the Limit PO by Location field
Step 3 – Choose your PO number – click the drop-down arrow in the Select Purchase Order field
Step 4 – Click submit. ZEUS loads the purchase order and opens the confirmation screen for editing
Step 5 – Confirm or edit the manufacturer’s item ID, vendor item number, UPC code, quantity ordered, price and delivery date

Step 7 – Click the Confirm button to submit the confirmed lines and exit back to the home page OR click the Select Another PO button to confirm the current lines and move on to the next PO to confirm.

You have two options. Do the mathematical calculation and change the price to match the invoice quantity and unit price OR contact SDI’s buyer who is authorized to change the unit of measure on existing purchase orders.

Once a PO is confirmed, it drops off the PO Confirmation list. If you need to view the PO again, use the PO Status function and type in the PO number. You will be able to see the PO confirmation and ASN status.

When performing voucher entry on the portal, you can enter invoices as much as six (6) months before today’s date.
