Receiving Exercise

Purpose of Exercise
To provide you with practice in receiving procedures.

You are working in the Anytown Public Library. A shipment from the ABC Vendor Co. has just arrived. You have found the packing slip and have unpacked all the items. The invoice arrived separately the same day and is now clipped to the packing slip.

1. Compare the packing slip to the invoice. Not any discrepancies on the packing slip.
2. Compare any purchase order s and invoice. On a separate sheet of paper, note any discrepancies and for each title, describe what the problem is and state what actions you would take.
