CREATEPO: PO Printed In Queue of Requisition Approver Instead Of Purchase Order Buyer (Doc ID 1400253.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 02, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Executable:POXPOPDF - PO Output for Communication


In Oracle Purchasing 'PO Output for communication' the request is submitted in the queue of the approver of the requisition rather than the buyer on the Purchase Order (PO) when the PO is created from the requisition through the CREATEPO workflow.

As a result the PO is printed in the queue from the requisition approver, instead of the purchase order approver. This is shown by workflow attribute PREPARER_PRINTER.

This issue can be reproduced as follows:
- Setup the CREATEPO workflow for some item.
- Create a requisition for that item and give a suggested buyer, eg...Chorton.
- Forward the requisition for approval, eg. to Cbrown.
- When Cbrown approves the requisition, the CREATEPO workflow creates the purchase order and submits it for approval.
- The PO Output For Communication request is launched in Cbrown's queue, which is the requisition approver.
