Last updated on MARCH 02, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Every Item is setup in the Master Item Setup.
It has a flag 'Allow Description Update' in the Purchasing tab. When Creating a Purchase Order line, the item description is defaulted from the Description on the Item Master. However, if the flag 'Allow Description Update' for the item at Master Level is set to 'Yes' the Description field for this item on the PO Line is enabled for update.  the user can update the PO Line Description {modify what has defaulted from Item Master}

If the flag 'Allow Description Update' is set to 'No' at the Master level, the form shows the original Description from Item Master on the Item Description on PO Line, overriding the user updated description at PO Line which is still exisintg in the table PO_LINES_ALL.
