    Title:
    Restrict to have a single supplier for all the requisition lines
    Summary:
    Restrict to have a single supplier for all the requisition lines
    Content:

    Hi,

    We noticed that the system allows the requester to create a single requisition with a different supplier for each line. How can we restrict to have a single supplier for all the requisition lines? Can this be achieved by any custom security previliges or profile options?

    Thanks

    Mani

      I believe one recommendation for a similar query in the past has been to write an approval rule that will reject the requisition if it has different suppliers on requisition lines within a requisition. Have you tried that?

        Thanks Ashok.

        I tried that but couldn't find any attributes that compare requisition lines in Requisition Approval Rules.

      Let me confirm your observation. This was something I recalled from a past forum.

      I ran this past a couple of approval experts internally too. I think the forum post recommendation that I was thinking about does not work for this requirement. As you correctly observe, there is not a way to 'compare' data across lines to write an approval rule.I will revert if I have any other suggestions. But at this point, it does look like there are not specific workarounds you can use.
