    This usually identifies the person responsible for the purchasing document in your company. The reference number/code often consists of the relevant person's initials.

    This field is just for internal referance.

    in companies there will be 10 Purchase engineers creating the Purchase orders.

    to find out whose purchase order we can maintain the employee number or code int his field and this can be populated in PO output.

    Hi,

    In addition to the explaination provided by others above the field "Our reference" being a text field can be used for indicating the letter number ,if any , in which the vendor has been corresponded prior to finalisation of the PO.This will act as refernece to the purchase order.
