Mulitple Suppliers For Purchase Orders

I am stuck on using multiple suppliers when pulling a materials request into a purchase order. It seems I can only use one supplier per purchase order. Is there a way in to create a purchase order from a materials request and create a single purchase order and use multiple suppliers.

Purchase Orders can only be issued to a single supplier.
If you have a material request that needs to be split to multiple suppliers, the easiest way is as follows:

  1. For each item in the material request, set the Default Supplier (in Item doc).
  2. Create a new Purchase Order (Buying > Purchase Order > New)
  3. Set the Supplier field to the first of the suppliers you’re issuing POs to.
  4. Click the “Get Items from Open Material Requests” button.
  5. Fill out the rest of the PO and issue it to the supplier.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for all the other suppliers you need to issues POs to.
