The Finance tab shows the financial information of the open Software License. The information is organized in the following sections:

Finance section - displays the financial information regarding the purchase of the license.

NOTE: If the Software License has been created when receiving the PO Item, Alloy Navigator Express populates the most fields in this section with the data from the PO Item and its Purchase Order. If you have associated the Software License with the Purchase Order using the Purchase Order field, Alloy Navigator Express populates the Purchase Date, Vendor, and Invoice Number fields with the data from the corresponding Purchase Order.
