(Doc ID 1233814.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When creating a new purchase order (PO) the shipment line the match invoice option is defaulted null.

Replication Steps:
1. The supplier site and supplier has the null value in match invoice option.
2. The payables system setup has the match invoice option with a value as it cannot be null.

The values are set as per the  <Note 1065184.1> How does the 'Invoice Match Option' default in Purchase Order shipment level?

3. Create a purchase order manually using the PO entry form.
4. Enter the header and check the shipments.  The invoice match option is null

Impact:  When the invoice match option is null the PO can be approved. But that cannot be used for invoice matching.
