Symptoms

On : 9.0 version, Procurement
Progress Payments and Voucher Match (P4314)
Tools Release 9.1.4.4

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
The Supplier field in the Voucher Match header screen is unprotected and a user is able to enter the field, select a different Supplier than is on the purchase order and then create the voucher with the wrong Supplier allowing a payment to be sent to a company that did not supply the product.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
It should not be possible to select a different Supplier than is on the purchase order and then create the voucher with the wrong Supplier allowing a payment to be sent to a company that did not supply the product.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Subcontract Purchase Order (P4310) with one Supplier (4344).
2. Receive the Goods or Services (P4312) from Supplier on the PO (4344).
3. Create a Version of Voucher Match (P4314) with the Progress Payments Interface. Progress Payment option #1 (Interface) = 1 (Progress Payment).
4. Enter Progress Payments (P4314), Find the Order with Receipts to Pay selected and Click Select.
5. The Voucher Match screen appears and the Supplier number field is populated with 4344 but is not locked.
6. Go into Visual Assist and Select a Different Supplier not on the PO. This Supplier may have nothing to do with the purchase.
7. Click down into the grid. The receipt is fetched into the grid. The Supplier number field in the header is the one entered from visual assist (59335) and the Supplier on the voucher detail is the one from the PO (4344) and is locked. Once you enter the grid it is not possible to change the supplier. Click OK.
8. The Supplier Mismatch Warning Appears (43E6).
9. The user can ignore the warning and the voucher will be created with the Supplier Number that is different than the Supplier on the PO.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
The likelihood is small of an AP clerk changing to the wrong the supplier at the time of voucher match, but if it were to occur, the wrong supplier could be paid.
