Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement and Subcontract Management - Version XE and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A special order requires different handling than a regular order. In many instances, a special order is a prerequisite to an actual order. Examples of special orders include:

You enter most special orders in the same way that you enter orders. You distinguish a special order by its order type and order activity rules. For example, when you work with a requisition, you usually enter an order type of OR (requisition order). When you work with a blanket order, you usually enter an order type of OB (blanket order), and so forth.

Based on the line types, activity rules, and status codes that you set up for special orders, each special order type follows a different process cycle in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Procurement system.

This document covers requisition orders in procurement.

 Frequently Asked Questions
 Question 1 : Why are purchase orders released through Generate POs from Requisitions (P43060) consolidated even when the processing option to consolidate is not active?
 Question 2 : Why does the error Branch Plant Invalid (Error ID 0964: Branch Plant is not setup in Branch Plant Constants file) appear when attempting to generate a purchase order from a requisition?
 Question 3 :What changes to purchase orders are reflected in a requisition? Why does the requisition (OR) reopen when changing the unit cost on the generated purchase order?
 Question 4 : Why are two different nonstock items consolidated into one order line?
 Question 5 : Multiple users can access a requisition order in Generate POs from Reqs - Work With Order Release (P43060) and generate purchase orders. The result is that multiple purchase orders can be created for the same requisition order. How can this be avoided?
 Question 6 : How can the purchase order number be manually assigned when generating a purchase order  from a requisition using P43060?
 Question 7: Why does the error Blanks Invalid (Error ID 0003) appear when attempting to release a purchase order from a requisition?
 Question 8: When P43060 is used to generate a purchase order from a requisition, where does the tax rate/area come from on the newly created purchase order?
 Question 9: What is the purpose of the Cancel Date (CNDJ) field in a requisition?
 Question 10 : When running Generate POs from Requisition (P43060) on an order with multiple lines, is there a way to release the entire order without having to review each line?
 Question 11 : When trying to release a PO from P43060 why is the following error received,  "Failed to perform Insert for F4301Z"?
 Question 12: Multiple J lines with the same account (no item), but different descriptions and unit costs are being released at the same time.  Only 1 line was created on the purchase order for the account and the varying descriptions and unit costs were lost.  Why were the varying descriptions and costs not maintained to create multiple purchase order lines?
 Question 13:  When trying to release a requisition into a purchase order using P43060 the following errors are received:  Invalid Commodity Code and Commodity Code has an invalid Data Dictionary Value.  What is causing this?
 Question 14: Can the Batch Requisition Consolidation (R43E060) program be used to generate purchase orders from requisitions that were created with the PO Entry (P4310) program?
 Question 15: Why does the G/L Date not match the G/L Date from the Requisition being released, but instead defaults in as the system date (today's date)?
 Question 16: Why does the Requested Date sometimes not match the Requested Date from the Requisition being released?
 Question 17: When Purchase Orders are Generated from Requisition order where Budget Checking is enabled, why isn't a Budget Hold Warning message displayed?
 Question 18: When generating a purchase order (OP) from a requisition (OR), the original order number populated on the purchase order document shows a blanket order (OB). Why is the OR document not the original order number?
 Question 19: Releasing multiple requisitions at the same time, that have multiple attachments in the header, results in a purchase order that has the attachment only from the first requisition released. Why are all the attachments from all the orders not attached to the resulting purchase order?
 Question 20: Releasing a Purchase Order with a changed supplier resulted into a different unit cost other than what is setup in the Supplier Catalog and Requisition. What could be the cause?
 Question 21: When trying to approve a requisition (P43081), why is error 0280 - Status Invalid for this Order Type, generating?
 Question 22: Can the supplier field in the Requisition Order header be optional at entry time, and later be changed or added?
 Question 23: A Purchase Order (OP) was generated from a Requisition Order (OR).  How can you determine the originator of the requisition when looking at the purchase order?
