Primary Ref Item Defaulted By Ediupack Even If Vendor PO File Has Non-primary Ref Item (Doc ID 2708458.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 22, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While the EDIUPACK is executed with purchase order(PO)  file containing non-primary ref item. Batch is creating PO by deriving the primary ref item from the system.

Even if EDI sends a file which has a secondary ref item, the PO would still be created with SKU and primary ref item.

Steps To Recreate:

  1. Receive the file from vendor (via EDI) for creating VMI orders, with no SKU item and a non-primary ref item given
  2. Run ediupack to consume the file received above
  3. Run vrplbld to load VMI PO into order table from the temporary order table
  4. Check the order tables (ordhead, ordloc and ordksu)
  5. Tables ordloc and ordsku will show the SKU item and the associated primary ref item on the order, instead of the non-primary ref item as received in the file in Step 1
