- Backorder Amount
- A backorder occurs when the actual amount dispensed is less than the “to be dispensed” amount(i.e., pharmacy did not have sufficient stock to fill the total number requested). The difference between these two amounts is the total that should be on backorder. Backorder amount is figured by the computer if both the inventory sheet and pick list are printed. If the MERGE INV. SHEET AND PICK LIST site parameter is set to “YES”, then the backorder amount must be entered using the Enter Backorders option.
