Add line items to a PO by name

When adding line items to an existing PO, you must identify the PO by its id number, which is a system-generated number that has no meaning in the real world. The PO name is also initially system generated, but can be changed to something more meaningful to the user, such as a real-life PO number. This enhancement would allow staff to identify an existing PO by entering its name.

This functionality will be explored as part of MassLNC's participation in the current acquisitions workflow improvement project.

Unfortunately, with limited funds available for acquisitions improvement, this enhancement did not make the final list. Returning this idea to the main development ideas site.

I'm not quite sure when this was added, but I found during recent testing on 2.4 that you can indeed add a line item to a PO by name. I'm placing this development idea in the attic.
