Supplier Merge Causes Transfer to Regular to Fail (Consigned Remains in Inactive Supplier) (Doc ID 1356546.1)

Last updated on APRIL 21, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

After running the Supplier Merge for ABC Company into ABC Corporation, existing onhand consigned stock still exists in ABC Company.
Attempting to use the material ends in error.
Normally the supplier merge fails if existing consigned stock exists and users cannot replicate this for new supplier merges.
 
Error
There must be a valid blanket purchase agreement in effect for the item you wish to transact.

What is working
1. The merge program correctly, automatically updated all associated Purchase Orders (POs), Blankets, and Approved Supplier Lists (ASLs) for the Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) items.
2. Any new consigned transactions work fine. The issue only impacts items already received into consignment before the merge. The onhand quantity shows the old supplier name as owning party.
