    Title:
    Need to attach the final signed documents from Supplier to Purchase Order
    Summary:
    Our requirement is we need attach a final signed legal document from Supplier after the Purchase order is in open status
    Content:

    When we send out Purchase order to Supplier, we have requirement to send legal document with it and once the supplier has signed this document and send it back to us, we need attach to that PO in oracle for our tracking purpose, but this is creating the change order. So, is there a way where we can avoid this change order to initiate when we attach a legal document?

    Cancel Purchase Order or Cancel Requisition First | Which Order is Recommended?
    Summary:
    Cancel Purchase Order or Cancel Requisition First | Which Order is Recommended?
    Content:

    What is the recommended order to cancel Purchase Orders and Requisitions?

    Our Buyer has canceled the PO (not the lines) and the Requestors try to cancel the Requisitions, but the Cancel Requisition option is grayed out under Actions button. When Requestors try to cancel the Requisition lines, they receive the error message "You cannot perform the action because the record is canceled or finally closed." The PO status = Canceled, but the Requisition status = Approved.

    Is there a preferred 'order' of events that should take place when trying to cancel both the PO and the Requisition? Will the Requisition lines ever show as canceled or will they continue to show approved even after the PO is fully canceled?

    Thanks for your response.

    PS - Our team has already reviewed this Oracle document: When Requestor Cancels The Requisition, The Related PO Will Be Auto Cancelled? (Doc ID 2268907.1)

    Requisitions are not appearing in Process Requisitions Page14

    Summary:
    Requisitions are not appearing in Process Requisitions Page without running Generate Orders
    Content:

    Hi All,

    I really need some feedback on this topic. Below is the scenario I am working on:

    1. I am creating an Expense Requisition Manually.

    2. I have Buyer Assignment Rule for this Category.

    3. When I approve the requisition, I can see buyer is also getting assigned in the requisition based upon Buyer assignment rule.

    4. But I am not able to see requisition on Process Requisition page.

    5. If I run Generate Orders Program, then I can see requisition on Process Requisition Page.

    I have done multiple Cloud Procurement Implementations and have never used Generate Orders program for requisitions to appear on Process Requisition page.

    In my current Project also, we never used Generate Orders process for Manual Requisitions to appear on Process Requisition page earlier.

    But after recent upgrade to 19B, we have to run Generate Orders program for manual requisitions to appear on Process Requisition page. 

    Oracle Support engineer says this was always supposed to be working like this, which I don't agree with.

    Cannot Upload Descriptive Flex Field value into Oracle Using FBDI template.
    Summary:
    When trying to import the FBDI template for items import, the DFF value is not getting populated in Oracle.
    Content:

    We enabled a DFF on the item level and we wanted to update this field while we are importing items into the system. The DFF is Attribute6, so we used the same Attribute6 in FBDI template also and tried to import it, every filed is getting imported except the DFF value.

    So can anyone please let me know what is we missing here?

    Hi,

    I am looking for following information about Purchase Order releases that can be created out of Blanket Purchase Agreement.

    Enviroment:  Fusion R12

     

    1- Where can i find out the menu/page to create relese for Blanket Purchase Agreement?

    2- Usually, releases are available in Purchasing tab in EBS version of ERP. But i do not see it in Fusion. Does this functionaliy change in Fusion?

    3- In case we create a Purchase Order release out of an Agreement then can we match the Invoices to Purchase Order release?

     

    Thank You

    Dependent Value Set for different segments for Purchasing...144.0

    Title:
    Dependent Value Set for different segments for Purchasing categories
    Summary:
    he requirement is: The first value set is ‘Independent’, the second one depends of the first one, and the third one depends of the second one
    Content:

    Our client wants to create for purchasing an item category structure of 3 segments
    We need to create 3 value sets
    The requirement is: The first value set is ‘Independent’, the second one depends of the first one, and the third one depends of the second one

    This is the structure of the segments (is in spanish)
    ‘Categoria compras’ segment depends of ‘Grupo de Compras’ segment
    ‘SubCategoria compras’ segment depends of ‘Categoria compras’


    The problem is that it seems is not posible to create that structure, because is not posible to assign a Dependent value to other Dependent value, it must be ‘Independent’

    Anyone can confirm if Oracle allows that structure?

    Purchase Order Approval views Life Cycle
    Content:

    Hi all,

    Current setup:

    Various approvers in the approval flow of a PO who do not have procurement agent/buyer/purchasing roles.

    Upon opening the approval notification (email), they can click the 'View Order'.
    However, he is not able to click through on PR link (it is just a string, not clickable link).
    He is not able to see Life Cycle options.

    He only has 'Employee role'. Is anyone who should be able to view LifeCycle of a PO (meaning PR/PO/Receipt/Invoice), need Procurement Agent setup?
