# Container Receipts Entry (CONTAINER.E)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
The CONTAINER.E procedure provides the ability to add container information for a vendor and post receipts against purchase orders. The procedure consists of two screens. The first screen contains the header information such as vendor, freight, tax and misc. information. On this screen there is an option to load all the open PO's for a vendor, or load certain purchase orders individually.
The line items screen contains all the detailed part, purchase order and quantity information. Individual line items may be added, deleted, or changed here. If an open PO exists for the part number entered, it will automatically be loaded for you. If no PO exists for the part & vendor, then upon filing the container information a purchase order will be created. The status will initially be set to "N" for the container.
When the container is physically received, the status should be changed to "R" and the information should be verified for accuracy. When it is determined that all information is correct on the container, the status should be changed to "C" to confirm the receipt. This will create receipt records and cause inventory transactions to occur. The container receipts will be posted through the normal receipts posting process, RECEIPTS.P1 .
Once the receipts records have been created, the container cannot be deleted, and the receipt records cannot be modified through this process. RECEIPTS.E2 can be used to correct individual receipt records on the container.
