PO Processor will automatically update the cost of an item if, when the item is received, it shows a different price than the price from the PO when it was received into inventory. This alert will let you know when any change happens so that the price change doesn't go unnoticed.
This alert has no variables. It's default schedule is each weekday morning.

The alert is telling you that when you submitted your PO to the vendor, you had the item at the Receipt Amount in eAuto. When the invoice was entered into AP, the item price was changed to the Voucher Amount.**
