If you know a recurring purchase order exists, but are unable to generate it, what do I do? You might not have rights to generate other buyers’ orders. You can verify this by selecting Options > Set Up Buyer Security from the navigation pane. On the General Options tab, verify that the Generate only my recurring purchase orders check box is unchecked. If it isn’t, check with your manager or if authorized, uncheck it and continue with your task. Read more about recurring purchase orders.
