    Title:
    How to change the Supplier after the PO is in Open status
    Content:

    Is there a way to change the supplier after the PO is fully approved and in Open status.

    Business requirement:

    We have 2 suppliers with almost same name with minor difference in their names, so buyer selected the wrong Supplier and created a PO and now it has been fully approved. Now, we found that the PO should have been created with the other supplier. So, is there a way or custom role that allows buyer to change supplier during change order process.

    If you cancel the PO and indicate that you do not want to cancel the unfulfilled demand then the requisition lines get reinstated and lets you process them into a new PO. That way the requisition gets tied to the new PO.

      Cancel the PO and issue a new one to the other supplier.

      Supplier updates not allowed once the PO is open the assumption is the order has already been communicated to the supplier and should be formally cancelled and cannot be reused to issue order to a different supplier.

        Hi Suman,

        But that PO is tied to Request, so if we cancel the PO and issue a new one to supplier then that Requisition is not tied to that PO and that will be a problem for us.

      Is budgetary control turned on? 

      Prior to 19B, it wasn't possible to reinstate unfulfilled demand when budgetary control is in effect. In 19B, you can opt-in to enable reinstatement of unfulfilled demand from canceled POs.

      Sabarish, a PO is a contract between two parties.  When you select a new supplier then it requires a new contract (PO).
