 Requisition Entry (P43E10)
 Question 1: Where does the value for the Branch/Plant (MCU) field, default from? (Note: the MCU field may have a different description, such as Job, Project, Business Unit, depending on the value set in the P43E10 option #4 on the Display tab)
 Question 2: Is it possible to change the value that is populated in the Branch/Plant field?
 Question 3: If a Requisition is created with a single account in P43E10, when creating a purchase order from the Requisition, the generated order will have ***Account Distribution*** in the Account Description field (DL01). Is there a way to configure the system so when there is only one account in the order, the account number appears?
 Question 4: What are the header and detail (F43E01.ERHS and F43E11.ERDS) status combinations for a Requisition order during its lifecycle?
 Question 5: Is it possible to copy an existing Requisition order created in the P43E10?
 Question 6: Is it possible to add negative lines to a requisition using P43E10?
 Question 7: Can a Requisition order be canceled?
 Question 8: Can tax be added to a Requisition order in P43E10?
 Question 9:  Can data be imported into P43E10 from a spreadsheet?
 Question 10: Can the ‘Category Codes’ accessible in the P4310 Purchase order header (aliases POHC01 through POHC12) be used in the P43E10 program?
 Question 11: User is getting error “Invalid Line Type” (ID 03ER) when trying to add a new Requisition in P43E10. What causes this?
 Question 12: If a requisition is canceled with the "Delete Order" Button, is there a way to determine what date the requisition was canceled?
 Question 13: Can a single Requisition (OR) have different Business Units on separate detail lines?
 Question 14: When entering an order with P43E10, can a non-stock item be automatically assigned a specific Supplier? For example, can Item A always default to Supplier B ?
 Requisition Entry Business Function Application (P43E0001)
 Question 1: What is the P43E0001 Requisition Entry Business Function Application?  How is it used?
 Requisition Expeditor (P43E060)
 Question 1: Can the user change the Buyer Number on a Requisition in the Expeditor program (P43E060)?
 Question 2: The P43E060 is issuing error "Blanks Invalid" (0003) after the order has been selected and the "Review Before Generation" or "Generate Orders" actions are performed. What could be causing this error?
 Question 3: Purchase orders released through Requisition Expeditor (P43E060) or Batch Requisition Consolidation (R43E060) are consolidated even when the Processing Option for Order Detail Consolidation on the Process Tab to consolidate is not active. Why does this happen?
 Question 4: Once a Purchase Order has been generated from the OR with the P43E060, is it necessary to receive the items before voucher match (use 3 way match), or will the Requisition still be updated when 2 way match is used, by populating one of the available date fields as the received date?
 Question 5: Error “Branch/Plant Invalid” (Error ID 0964) is thrown when trying to generate the purchase order form the P43E060 Expeditor program – what is causing this?
 Question 6: How is an advanced pricing adjustment handled by the Requisition Expeditor? During order entry in P43E10, the system uses the supplier item price.
 Question 7: Error 43ST “Ship To Required for POE” is thrown during the Requisition Expeditor process – what is causing the error?
 Batch Requisition Consolidation (R43E060)
 Question 1: Can the Batch Requisition Consolidation (R43E060) program be used to generate purchase orders from requisitions that were created with the PO Entry (P4310) program?
 Desktop Receiving (P43E20)
 Question 1: Are there options besides using Desktop Receiving (P43E20) to receive and update requisitions generated from RSS?
 Question 2: After generating an OP order from an RSS Requisition in the Expeditor (P43E060) application, the Desktop Receiving application (P43E20) does not display the record. Why is this happening?
 Question 3: If a line on an order generated from RSS has been fully received using P43E20, and then has been partially vouchered, is it possible to reverse the remainder of the received quantity using an RSS (System 43E) program?
 Question 4: What causes the following errors in P43E20 Receive Requisitions after performing a receipt - TP Subform (S43E20B), Records Not Selected, Error ID 2488, Next Number Not Found, Error ID 049B?
 Question 5: A line was added to a purchase order that was generated from RSS, but the new line is not appearing in the Desktop Receiving (P43E20) application. Why is this line not appearing in the P43E20 and how can this line be received?
 Question 6: What causes the following error in P43E20 (Desktop Receipt) when the user attempts to cancel the receipt: TP Subform (S43E20B) User Not Found in User Master File, Error ID 0261?
 Requisition Approval (P43E82)
 Question 1: When attempting to approve a requisition by taking the link from an email generated from the Work Flow process, the following error occurs:  COULD NOT LOAD PROCESSING OPTIONS  Please use the latest Java generator to regenerate the form P43E82_W43E82A_TIMSTEST.  What is causing this and how can it be corrected?
 Question 2: With the Approver radio button selected and the "Submitted" option checked, the P43E82 takes several minutes to return orders awaiting approval, or fails to display the orders altogether. Why does this happen?
 Commodity Structure (P40500)
 Question 1: How are items in a structure sorted and displayed, in the lower right section of form W40500B?
 Question 2: Does a limitation exist on the maximum number of commodity codes that can be in use at the top level of the hierarchy?
 Question 3: Can the items in the Commodity Structure (P40500) be translated into a different language, and be displayed in that language?
 Question 4: What is the purpose of the default commodity code Unknown in P40500 application?
 Question 5: What is maximum number of levels in the commodity hierarchy?
 Question 6:  Is it possible to have the same item assigned to more than one commodity?
 Media Objects and Attachments
 Question 1:  A Requisition order (OR) has an attachment, added in P43E10 via the Attachment column in the Requisition Cart. When the Requisition Expeditor (P43E060) is used to generate a purchase order, will the attachment carry over to the generated order?
  Shopping Cart (P43E25)
  Question 1:  The Shopping Cart program, “Products” tab, displays the item associated to a Commodity Code record, but there is no supplier shown in the “Supplier” tab. The supplier has been defined in the P40500 (Set Up Commodity Structure). Why is this happening?
 Question 2: Can the Shopping Cart program be used to enter orders for J line type (services, lump sum) items? There is no area in the detail grid, or anywhere on the form, to allow entry of account numbers.
 Punchout / Direct Connect
 Question 1: What Item Number values should be returned  from the Punchout / Direct Connect process in RSS?
 Tables Used in RSS
 Question 1: Does the standard RSS module offer any audit or ledger capabilities, for example a table ending in -199, similar to the F42199 and F43199 in the Sales and Procurement modules ?
