Order Line Text: The entry that should appear in a printed purchase order when this item is included.

Cost Center: The cost center to be used for the cost of this item. For more on cost centers, see Cost Centers.

Comments: Any comments you want to associate with the item.

Save & Close: Saves the current record and closes the editor window.

Cancel: Closes the window without saving any changes you've made to the record since the last time you saved. When you Save the record, the Cancel button changes to Close, indicating that you can safely close the window without losing any changes.
