Transactions Workbench:Does 'Translated Description' Shows MLS value Or User Entered Description?

(Doc ID 1252925.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 22, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version: 12.0.6 and later   [Release: 12.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Users are entering data in the order lines, in a field called "User Item Description". This field is passed to the Receivables invoice field "Translated Description". Is this field "Translated Description" for MLS or not?

 Per Order Management User Guide:
Overview of Override Item Description
Invoicing: If the User Item Description is not blank, then that description would be passed to Accounts Receivable during the Invoice Interface, so that it can be printed in place of the standard item description. Accounts Receivable will print a column called Translated Item Description in place of the standard item description

Per Receivables User Guide:
More Tabbed Region
Translated Description: A description of the inventory item in an alternate language. You enter this information when defining inventory items "

There seems to be a discrepancy in the OM and AR user guides. Is this field "Translated Description" for MLS or not?
