Symptoms

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.
