Last updated on MAY 18, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When creating a Line Type (Purchasing: Setup>Purchasing>Line Types) with Value Basis "Amount", the field "Unit" is mandatory but it is possible to enter a dummy Unit Of Measure (i.e. which does not belong to the valid UOM list of values)

As a consequence :
 1- Requisition Lines entered with this line type does not have any "UOM" and then fail to be approved with the message


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter a dummy 'Unit' of measure on Line Type
2. The Line type can be saved and used on Requisitions and Purchase Orders.
