    Set Up Financials/Supply Chain > Common Definitions > User Preferences > Define User Preferences > Purchase Order Authorizations > Buyers User Authorization > Buyers User Authorized For

2. Log in with user VP1 and create a Purchase Order with buyer VP1. (BBELL should not be able to work a PO created by VP1 buyer).

3. Log in with user BBELL and navigate to Purchasing > Purchase Orders > Dispatch POs. Select a run control in order to launch the Dispatch PO.

4. On the run control, the Buyer BBELL can select the purchase order created by VP1 and can dispatch it from Dispatch POs page.
