Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Retail Merchandising System (RMS), a purchase order (PO) can be distributed according to a 50% ratio among two virtual warehouses belonging to two different physical warehouses.  This can occur with no error raised to the user.  It is expected that should a user attempt such a distribution, that an error would appear to prevent this behavior.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create an order; add supplier site and dates.
  2. Click on 'Items'. Select an item and add quantity as 100.
  3. Click on 'Location' to open Location Distribution form [locdist].
  4. Select two virtual warehouses from different physical warehouse locations.  Insert a 50%/50% ratio for distribution and click OK.
  5. Note that the form closes and accepts the values without error, although both virtual warehouses have different physical warehouses.
