The majority of our parts have a supplier (distributor) and a manufacturer utilizing the nice features of MiniMRP. We like to specify on the PO the manufacturer to clearly identify the part requirements to ensure the supplier is not substituting an equivalent part.
Currently when making a PO we click the ">" and go into the part and copy and paste the manufacturer and manufacturer part number into the notes section of the line.
I was wondering if there was a better way to manage this to automatically get the Manufacturer and Manufacturer Part number on the PO when purchasing from a supplier (distributor)?

If we have a part where the manufacturer's part number is critical but we buy from a reseller/vendor then, in the item detail, we have the manufacturer's initials and the manufacturer's part number in the supplier part number field instead of the supplier's own part number. That way the mfr's part number always appears in the PO leaving the supplier in no doubt about what we want.
In some cases though we have that data in the description field instead.

We are doing the same as Marv described. It works well as is.
