 If you run mSupply using [[other_stuff:​virtual_stores|virtual stores]] then you can place an order for goods with another store within mSupply. ​ If you run mSupply using [[other_stuff:​virtual_stores|virtual stores]] then you can place an order for goods with another store within mSupply. ​
  
 There are two ways you can do this: There are two ways you can do this:
-  - Create purchase orders (internal requisitions) where the supplier is another store. 
-  - In versions of mSupply newer than v4.01, internal orders are the desktop equivalent of [[mobile:​user_guide2#​supplier_requisitions|supplier requisitions]] in mSupply mobile and are an easier way to place orders in another store, without having to submit a purchase order and process goods received records. 
  
-===== Internal Requisitions =====+  * Create purchase orders (internal requisitions) where the supplier is another store. In versions of mSupply prior to v4.01, these generated a single customer invoice in the supplying store, but in newer versions there is an extra intermediate step to generate a [[issuing_goods:​stock_control_methods#​response_requisitions|response requisition]] first. This allows you to create multiple customer invoices from the same order (e.g. when all of the requested order cannot be supplied at the same time): 
 +    - create purchase order to supplying store in requesting store 
 +    - when the purchase order is confirmed, a response requisition is automatically created in the supplying store 
 +    - in the supplying store, multiple customer invoices can be created from the response requisition 
 +    - when each customer invoice is finalised, a goods received record is automatically created in the requesting store 
 +    - when each goods received record is finalised, the received quantities for the purchase order are updated and a supplier invoice is automatically created 
 + 
 +  * In versions of mSupply newer than v4.01, internal orders are the desktop equivalent of [[mobile:​user_guide2#​supplier_requisitions|supplier requisitions]] in mSupply mobile. If you aren't already using purchase orders and goods received records in your workflow, this is a simpler and easier way to place orders in another store: 
 +    - create internal order to supplying store in requesting store 
 +    - when the internal order is finalised, a response requisition is automatically created in the supplying store

 For versions of mSupply newer than v4.01, confirming the purchase order will create a [[issuing_goods:​stock_control_methods#​response_requisitions|response requisition]] in the supplying store (with your store'​s name in the //Name// field). This allows the supplying store to create multiple customer invoices to supply the order (and hence to better handle partially fulfilled orders). For older versions of mSupply, it will create only a single [[issuing_goods:​stock_control_methods#​creating_the_customer_invoice|customer invoice]]. For versions of mSupply newer than v4.01, confirming the purchase order will create a [[issuing_goods:​stock_control_methods#​response_requisitions|response requisition]] in the supplying store (with your store'​s name in the //Name// field).

 When the order is then saved, it will automatically generate a corresponding [[issuing_goods:​stock_control_methods#​response_requisitions|response requisition]] in the supplying store.
