    Title:
    Copy DFF from Req to PO
    Summary:
    Copy DFF from Req to PO
    Content:

    Hello;

    we have a requirement to copy DFF from Req to PO. Today  we have an extension that does DB triggers and my understanding that is not possible in Cloud- I found this configuration- However there is few things to consider.

    My question is how is the grouping of requisition lines prevented? what does that mean exactly?

    When you enable these profile options:

    • Copying of descriptive flexfields is enabled in the automated and manual requisition to purchase order creation flows.

    • Grouping of requisitions and requisition lines on a purchase order is prevented.

    • If either the header profile (PO_COPY_REQ_HDR_DFF_TO_PO) or the line profile (PO_COPY_REQ_LINE_DFF_TO_PO) is set, requisition line grouping is prevented.

    • If the header profile (PO_COPY_REQ_HDR_DFF_TO_PO) is not set, requisition grouping is allowed.

    • Grouping requisition lines on a single PO line is prevented in all cases.

     

    List of Profile Options

    This table lists the profile options you can use to control the copying of descriptive flexfields from requisitions to purchase orders.

    Profile Option Code Profile Option Name Description

    PO_COPY_REQ_HDR_DFF_TO_PO

    Requisition Header Descriptive Flexfields Copied to Purchase Order Headers

    Enable descriptive flexfields to be copied from a requisition header to the corresponding purchase order header.

    PO_COPY_REQ_LINE_DFF_TO_PO

    Enable descriptive flexfields to be copied from a requisition line to the corresponding purchase order line.

    Enable descriptive flexfields to be copied from a requisition distribution to the corresponding purchase order distribution.

    Thanks

      Hi Joelle,

      Grouping is just the combining of multiple requisitions/requisition lines. If you want to copy over requisition header DFFs to purchase order headers, the system won't allow you allow you to combine requisition lines from different requisitions onto the same purchase order. This is because the values of the DFFs for each of those requisitions may be different. Similarly, if you want to copy over requisition line DFFs to purchase order lines, then each requisition line must be its own purchase order line - you won't be able to combine multiple requisition lines for the same item into a single purchase order line.

      Let me know if you need more information.
