Some of the commonly asked questions about purchases are answered here.

The difference between regular and optional purchase order is given below:

Regular Purchase Order: It allows you to track receipt note and/or purchase vouchers recorded against an order, therefore making it a complete cycle. Also, only regular purchase orders affect the Purchase Order Outstandings reports.

Optional Purchase Order: It will not allow you to track receipt note and/or purchase vouchers made against an order.

One similarity between both the vouchers is that they do not affect the books of accounts.
