Create a purchase order form by downloading a template from sites such as TidyForms.com or Vertex42.com and customizing it through a word processing or spreadsheet program, as of 2015. Alternately, use a form creation tool from sites such as Shopify.com or FormSwift.com to make a custom form using standard formatting that does not require modifying any sections in an external application.
TidyForms.com and Vertex42.com offer a variety of purchase order templates for use with different programs, and each listing includes the compatible software necessary to use the documents. Each entry also includes a thumbnail preview of the final form to allow users the ability to preview its formatting before downloading the item. To customize the form, open it in the appropriate program, and click on each blank section to enter details such as company name, customer name, purchase quantities and the billable amount for the order. Users are also able to modify the forms through the formatting options in order to remove unnecessary sections or to make other changes to match individual needs.
Shopify.com presents all of the available fields for the form on one page, allowing users to quickly see all the information necessary to generate the document. Users may also enter the date into the open fields and review them prior to generating the document. FormSwift.com walks users through the creation process with a series of questions to populate the form accordingly, before generating a PDF for download or print.
