Use the Equipment Purchase window to process and record purchases of new equipment. In a purchase transaction, you can buy a single piece of equipment or multiple pieces of the same type of equipment. Purchasing equipment is a two-step process. First, you determine what will be purchased and how much, and create a purchase transaction record that reflects this. Then, when the purchase is approved, select the check box in the Accepted column, which adds the purchased equipment to your administrative unit's inventory.

Note: When the system creates new records in the Equipment Inventory window for the newly purchased and accepted items, it only copies data from the columns in the Data tab that are in the 'ds_equipment' data store object to the new records. If you need to add columns to this object, do so through User Control Properties Dialog Box.
