Multiple Error Messages When Trying to Update Store Order Multiple In A What If Allocation Using Set All Option (Doc ID 2531814.1)

Last updated on APRIL 11, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Allocation - Version 16.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the default  calculation multiple is Inner in Allocation system options(FP_STORE_CALC_MULT='IN' ). The What If Allocation UI requires Eachs by default. When trying to update the Calculation Multiple setting using the Set All button, a series of error messages prevents the user from updating the setting from Inner to Each. The Set All button fails when 2 or more items are part of the What If Allocation. The user can set each individual item to Each but must navigate through error messages to make the update.

Steps to recreate the issue:




  1. Log in to the Allocation Application
  2. Navigate to Tasks and Select `Create What If Allocation
  3. Search for an item 
  4. Select item and click Create Worksheet 
  5. Using Quick Item Add, add a minimum of one or two more items to the worksheet. 
  6. Once added, select all items and click Create Allocation 
  7. Calculation Multiple is set to 'Inner' (Default)
  8. Click on the drop down beneath the Calculation Multiple setting and select Each.  Then click on Set All. 
  9. The following error occurs: "You must select a Calculation Multiple other 
    than Inner since it is not a valid PO multiple when creating when creating 
    PO(s) in What If Allocations." 
  10. After clicking ok on the error message and trying to change the Calculation Multiple setting to Each by item, the following error occurs: "You must select a Calculation Multiple other than Inner since it is not a 
    valid PO multiple when creating when creating PO(s) in What If Allocations." 
  11. However, the individual item Calculation Multiple can be changed to Each, but the user must go through several error messages in order to change the setting. 
  12. While the error messages display, the user is unable to cancel the allocation and it takes several tries to exit from the allocation.
