I have been working on Reckon Accounts Hosted recently and I encountered several questions.
Can I link part number to supplier?  How can I link an items to supplier so that when I found the item is at low stock, I can directly create purchase order from the item page rather than create one through normal process.

Hi Gong

You can add the "Preferred Supplier" in the Item setup, however this is really an info-only field for reporting & doesn't automate anywhere.
You can also enter a "Reorder Point" quantity on an Item which - among other Reminders (under Preferences) - you can choose to have display when you open your company file.

As a tip, I usually have my Item List grouped by Supplier (by creating the Supplier as a main Item Header then each part as a sub-item)
This allows you to view your entire Supplier's List of Items when in an Item column & to be able to display/print specific Supplier Item Lists also.
