New and improved features are now available when using the Requisition and Purchase Orders Query tool (a.k.a. Web Inquiry) to search for requisitions, purchase orders, invoices and related details.

These enhancements allow access to more data, reducing time spent gathering and correlating required purchasing-related information.
