Bug: Customer Reference Field

I am using Easy Books for OS X and primarily I use it for Customer Invoicing. I have downloaded the Premium version since I have to submit hard copies of the Invoices. Here's the issue I am facing when creating invoices for the same customer: When I enter 'Their reference' field, which is typically the Purchase Order # against which I am raising the invoice, this gets updated in all the previous invoices of the same customer. So if I had made an invoice number 1 for customer ABC against their P.O. # 1, then the next invoice I raise for ABC against P.O. #2, the customer reference in invoice #1 will also change to P.O. #2. Ideally the customer reference for every invoice will be different and that difference should reflect in every invoice.

How can this be rectified?

    Hi Rahul,

    The customer reference field is for the case when your customer insists that you use a specific reference they give you for your account with them. In other words it's a global account level setting not a per-invoice setting like a PO.

    There is a PO field which I think you'll find a better fit. Look in the drop down menu (the cog) at the top right of the sale entry form. You should see an option to add a "PO Reference". This appears on the sales invoice and is a per-sale value that won't change when you update another sale.
