After approval of a Purchase Order (PO) and the Transmission method is set to Print, the 'PO Output for Communication', is automatically spawned. When completed if the user chooses the button 'View Output' from the completed Concurrent Request (View>Requests) the following error occurs.
If manually executed the program from Reports>Run the Purchase Order output displays correctly.
The error APP-FND-00418: Output file for this request is not available
Cause: You requested the Concurrent Manager to automatically delete your output file for you by
setting the profile option Save Output to No before submitting your concurrent request, or request
generates no output.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a PO and save
2. Submit for approval
3. PO is approved and the 'PO Output for Communication' is spawned
4. Goto View -> Requests and confirm process is completed
5. Choose the 'View Output' button and the error occurs
NOTE: An error may not always appear. The document may not show on the desktop. Requisition does not print.
