I have a problem with purchase orders that I hope somebody can help me with.

When I try to create a PO it brings me to a new RFQ but I already have product prices so I don't need to send a document to my supplier which says request for quotation. I just need issue the purchase order.

A RFQ it's just the purchase order in draft. You have to confirm it so it's going to be a Purchase Order. It's like any form on OpenERP.

When you create something it doesn't mean that you are going to do it, only when you confirm it it's going to work. On PO the draft mode is called RFQ.

Thanks Grover,

I understand the workflow now.

Now that I've confirmed the Purchase Order I can't see the options to print or email the PO.

So, if I understand correctly you can email an RFQ from OpenErp but you cannot email a Purchase Order. That's strange.

The button "send Email" disappears after confirmation of the order. But feel free to change the way it works and make the buttons stay if you need to. You have all the tools you need to do. If you don't want to do on your own you will find partners all around the world will help you. I could change it with 5-6 clicks in the view or with only editing one line in the source code. The workflow you find is just a draft. You can use it the way it is or alter it to make it fit to your requirements.
