How to display suppliers product reference on purchase order lines ?

By default, on purchase order the suppliers product reference is not displayed.

This is quite often required for products that more likely to be identified using part numbers(reference code in OE) but not product name/description. The same applies to sales order lines.

If I create a manual PO it does not contain the supplier product code or description, but if it is generated from min stock etc. it does. It should always display the suppliers product code!

You are right. Currently if you manually add a new line in a purchase order, the suppliers product name and product code is not taken into account.

This has already been reported as bug:


The fix in this link seems to work. Just tried it in v7. Direct link here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/openobject-addons/+bug/993177/+attachment/3167487/+files/fix-po-line-description.diff

In v8, supplier product code and name show correctly in purchase order line.  There was a problem of showing unnecessary brackets at the end, which has also been solved in a recent commit.
