Linking Sales Orders to Purchase Orders

Our company is new to NetSuite and we are going through the implementation process. This is my second implementation in the last six years so I have been doing a lot of transactions in the sandbox to determine where we might have issues based on our processes.

I have looked in SuiteAnswers, the deployment material and even googled it, which is how I found the slack community, is whether or not you can link an existing sales order to an existing purchase order or vice versa. I am thinking this will have to be some sort of customization. In our current system we are constantly linking and unlinking SO’s from PO’s for various reasons and it just doesn’t seem like this system is geared for this. In fact it seems as if the only SO’s that link to PO’s are drop ships and special items.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

You can very easily put a custom field on either one, and set the source of that field to transactions to link them.
