Oracle Purchasing - Version 11.5.10 to 12.1.3 [Release 11.5 to 12.1]

Within Oracle Purchasing there is the ability to warn a user when the quantity of items being received exceeds the outstanding balance of the ordered quantity as well as the option to reject the difference between the outstanding balance and the quantity ordered.
This is know as the 'Over Receipt Tolerance' and the 'Over Receipt Action'
These values can be set at four locations within the Purchasing module and there is a precedence in the order in which these locations are evaluated.
|Order||Location||Navigation||If Not Set|
|1||PO Shipment Line||Purchase order > Shipment lines > Tab: Receiving Controls||Evaluate settings on the Item|
|2||Item||Items > Organization Items > Tab: Receiving
Items > Master Items > Tab: Receiving
|Evaluate settings on the Vendor|
|3||Vendor||Supply Base > Supplier > Tab: Receiving||Evaluate settings on the Receiving Options|
|4||Receiving Options||Setup > Organizations > Receiving Options||Setting must be set as part of the organization setup|
Over Receipt Tolerance
The value entered represents the percentage of the quantity ordered in addition to the quantity ordered that will invoke an action.
Over Receipt Action
|None||Receipts may exceed the selected tolerance.|
|Reject||Purchasing does not permit receipts that exceed the selected tolerance.|
|Warning||Purchasing displays a warning message but permits receipts that exceed the selected tolerance.|
