Information in this document applies to any platform.
In Oracle Purchasing and Oracle Sourcing, requisition line numbers and sourcing RFQ/Quotation line numbers are not appearing in the same order when placed onto a purchase order.
It is expected that the requisition line numbers be the same on the Sourcing RFQ and on the standard Purchase Order that get created.
Due to this issue, users cannot easily navigate through the documents. Some Purchase Orders have several hundred lines, and it can be difficult for the supplier, buyers and Payables users to read if the items are not depicted in the desired groups or order.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Requisition is created in Purchasing responsibility
-- Six lines, ordered 1 through 6
2. AutoCreate the requisition to an RFQ.
-- The lines in the AutoCreate Documents window are NOT ordered by requisition line number, however. (Example: Order is 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 6.)
3. In Sourcing responsibility, the buyer rearranges the order of the lines on the RFQ.
- Publish the RFQ.
- Enter the quotation information and ensures that the lines are in the desired order (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). - Complete the award.
- RFQ gets created into a Standard Purchase Order.
4. In Purchasing, view the Standard Purchase Order
-- Observe the lines are ordered exactly as they were in the AutoCreate Documents window when the RFQ was created (and not ordered as they are on the RFQ/Quotation, e.g: Order is 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 6).
