    Payables Invoice Approval
    Payables Invoice Approval to be driven by PO category

    Hi All,

    We have a requirement to derive approval rules based on PO category name which is matched to Invoice. I inquired Oracle and they confirmed that at present, there is no variable for category name and there is an enhancement request pendig for it.

      That  is correct.  This is not currently planned.

      I can't think of one since you cannot add attributes that don't exist.  If you can add the PO Category to the Invoice as a DFF or some other attribute that is available to the approval rule then you can us that.  

      Maybe someone else has a better solution.

        I agree with you Becky. The only approach would be to store it in a DFF that is available in the approval rules configuration task. Go through the available attributes and try to flag one that could store this information. You can also keep your SR open and request to see if they have information as to how other customers associated to this enhancement request have worked around this issue.

        Let us know of your findings.

        If the PO category is associated to the Natural account, then we can try to utilize in the approval rules and define rules around them.  But if one Natural account is tied to multiple PO category values, then it might not work.
