    A client is implementing Self Service procurement and Purchasing without inventory.

    All the items are expense items with majority of the purchases are category based. Few capex purchases.

    The accruals are setup for period end.

    1. What other setups are required to be completed specific to period end accruals?
    2. What are the steps to complete the period end accruals in Oracle Fusion Cloud?
    3. At what stage in the period close process, the period end accruals are completed

    Thanks.

    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?

    Question on Centralized Procurement (with BUs across ledgers) and Invoicing+Payments in a common ledger
    Summary:
    We are planning to use Multiple ledgers in US to separate the Joint ventures vs the main entities by managing them in separate ledgers. But we would like to create a shared procurement services
    Content:

    I have a question on Shared services procurement with the below scenario that we are trying to accomplish. Could you please let us know if this is possible or if there's an alternative on what we are trying to accomplish?

    Here is the Scenario

    Problem Summary
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Trying to setup shared service procurement and not able to select proper Bill-To on the Supplier Master

    Problem Description
    ---------------------------------------------------
    We have three BUs
    1. OC Centralized Procurement BU
       a. Acting as centralized procurement BU
       b. No Ledger/LE attached to this BU
    2. OC Enterprises BU (in US and assigned to Ledger 1)
       a. Responsible for AP invoicing and payments
       b. Ledger: Controlled Entities USD
       c. LE: OC Enterprises, Inc. (Delaware)
    3. OC at Legacy Health (JV) BU (in US to manage their Joint Venture companies and assigned to Ledger 2)
       a. Requisitioning and receiving BU
       b. Ledger: Non-Controlled Entities USD
       c. LE: OC at Legacy Health, LLC

    Problem: trying to create supplier with following attributes
    . OC Centralized Procurement BU as Procurement BU on Supplier
    . OC Enterprises BU as Bill-To-BU
    . OC at Legacy Health (JV) BU as Client BU (not getting an option).

    How can we associated the Client BU as Joint venture BU so that we can create the Requisitions in OC at Legacy Health JV BU, Purchase orders in Centralized Procurement BU and then Invoicing + Payments in OC Enterprises BU

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks

    We are on R12. Once we configure PO approval rules in the system, we would like to validate the rules through a report. Is there a standard report available or please share if you have one built? Other than report, is there any other way to validate?

    Thanks, Bala.

    Hiding the PO amount from the PO output (pdf)105.0

    How to handle cases when we don't want the supplier to see the PO total amount
    Content:

    Hi,

    we have a business cases when we don't want the supplier to see the total amount of the PO. Is there any way how to hide it? The reason I posted this to Self Service Procurement forum, not Purchasing, is that we hope to find a solution that can be done by the requester (without buyer's manual work)

    For example, we order some construction work. We want to create the PO for a sum of 50000,00 EUR (estimate), but we don't want that the supplier sees the sum we have "reserved" for this work. 

    Now we use a workaround that in these cases the buyer will disable the communication method when processing the requisition  nand creating a PO, so that the PO is not sent to the supplier at all. But we would like to find a solution where the SSP Requester could be able to somehow either hide the total amount by himself, OR prevent the sending of the PO, so that we wouldn't need buyer in between. Then we could skip the buyer and speed the process. 

    Anyone else having this kind of business cases? If yes, how have you tackled them? All help is appreciated!

    How to change the Supplier after the PO is in Open statusAnswered9

    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.
