    Batching Purchase Orders to Supplier1

    Title:
    Batching Purchase Orders to Supplier
    Summary:
    How to batch POs to Supplier via Coomunciate Purchasing Documents function.
    Content:

    My client wishes to batch POs to the Supplier.

    The Oracle documentation states that "you can communicate documents to your supplier in batch by scheduling Communicate Purchasing Documents process. The process sends the communication using the method specified on the purchasing document".

    I wish this to be sent via email as set on the POs.

    How do I stop the application from automatically emailing out each PO individually to the Supplier once each PO has been approved, and instead only send one communication for particular suppliers through this process?

    Approved Supplier List (ASL)
    Summary:
    Approved Supplier List (ASL)
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a requirement to restrict any purchasing (Req/Orders) for specific suppliers (Blacklisted).

    The approved supplier list functionality doesn't allow any restriction on Order creation when category and supplier from ASL is used.

    There are no Inventory items for now only categories.

    Also, i'm unable to find the source document - Blanket Purchase Agreements, there is only Contract Purchase Agreement in the drop down list under ASL source documents.The Generate Approved supplier list also doesn't show any agreement numbers.

    Please share if you have come across customers with similar requirement.

    Many thanks.

    Anil

    Content:

    There is change order(XX)exist against PO (***) and which are having status either Incomplete/Pending Approvals or Approved.

    Requirement : If new line are been added in to change order(XX) then it should always follow the newly added lines (cost center) approval hiearachy. 

    Rules are written on amount changed at header level including the cost center numbers with respect cost center manger approvals and which is working fine.

    User needs that,if there is additonal line added in the change order then it should only follow the added lines cost center manager approvals not the exisiting lines cost center approvers.

    Is there any attributes where We can compare the cost center with existing lines cost center and build approval hieararchy around it.

    Can any one help on the same.

    Hi 

    We have a client who will be implementing Cloud Procurement for managing purchase orders and use EBS for all receiving and AP invoicing. In the cloud they will not manage any inventory. Hence when the receipts are done against the PO in EBS, we want to update the same in cloud against that PO. Any suggestions on can we meet this requirement? 

     

    Thanks

    Close Purchase Order Status
    Summary:
    Change status of Open PO to Closed
    Content:

    In Cloud R12, we were able to close a PO (change status from Open to Closed) and no AP Invoices were able to match.

    Now in R13 when the PO status changes from "Open to Closed", an AP Invoice can still be matched?

    Change the Inventory Organization in Open PO2

    Change the Inventory Organization in Open PO
    Summary:
    Change the Inventory Organization in Open PO
    Content:

    Many customers want when they issue PO (Approved PO) they can edit it and update the receiving inventory organization. this is very common due to many reasons, one of them is; warehouse capacity issue. Currently, in Oracle Purchasing Fusion, we can't do it. Does anyone face the same issue? The workaround available and suggested by Oracle engineers is:

    split the schedule in the PO
    change the org to the new schedule
    have all quantity for the new org in this new schedule"

    This workaround is not correct because; you can't delete the old schedule or put zero in the quantity field. The only option here is to cancel the old schedule but you must go to the PO line quantity and double it to make it equal to the new schedule and the old canceled schedule quantities laugh

    Can we use project financials mapping set in procurement...1

    Can we use project financials mapping set in procurement transaction account builder?
    Content:

    Hi All,

    Here is the scenario: We already have modified the SLA rules in Project Financial management and to derive one of the segment we are using a mapping set. The input source of the mapping set is 'Project descriptive flexfied 2' at project header.

    Now, we are implementing Procurement where we will create project based purchase orders and accordingly need to derive PO charge account using project attributes in transaction account builder (TAB). Following are my questions:

    1. Can I use the same account rule in TAB that are already defined in Project Financials? I see many of them are available in drop down in TAB PO charge account. However when I select them and tries to build account, it gives error.

    2. Assuming I will have to setup account rules within in Purchasing application to be used in TAB, can I use the same mapping set which we already defined in Project Financials? In TAB also, my requirement is to derive one of the segment using 'Project descriptive flexfied 2' at project header. My observation is that I don't see any mapping set which in not defined within Purchasing application.

    Please clarify for me. Appreciate your help.

    Thanks/Amit
