Default Location Is Not Defaulted on RCVRCERC Form If Direct Delivery Routing (Doc ID 1497974.1)

Last updated on JUNE 01, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When receiving standard purchase orders, on the Enter Receipts form (RCVRCERC) the default location is not defaulted when receipt routing is set to direct delivery.
 
Purchase order distribution lines always have:
Requester = null
Deliver-To = null  
Subinventory = null
 
The problem only occurs if receipt routing is set to direct delivery; for example, if the destination type is 'Receiving'.
 
If updating the routing to 'Standard receipt' or 'Inspection required' the same shipment line correctly displays a location / a destination on the Enter Receipts form (and destination type is 'Expense' or 'Inventory').
 

Expected behavior
The default location should be defaulted from the location defined as a default at the organization level when it is not further specified at the distribution level.
 
Steps
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
 
1) From the Purchasing responsibility navigate to Setup / Organizations / Organizations PERWSDOR form for Inventory organization M1
  Default Location = M1- Seattle Mfg
 
2) Then navigate to Purchase Orders / Purchase Orders form, enter and approve standard Purchase Order (PO) with 2 lines for the same item:
 
  Both have at distribution level
  Requester = null
  Deliver-To = null
  Subinventory = null
 
  Both have at Shipment level
  Num =1
  Org = M1
  Ship-To = M1- Seattle Mfg  
 
  For line 1
  Receipt routing = Direct Delivery
 
  For line 2
  Receipt Routing = Standard Receipt  
   
3) Navigate to Receiving / Receipts RCVRCERC form
  Search for the newly created PO:
 
  . First line has destination null and location null
  Location = null
  Header information:
  Order type = Standard
  Destination = ---
  Routing = Direct Delivery
   
  . Second line has   
  Location = M1- Seattle Mfg  
  Header information:
  Order type = Standard
  Destination = M1- Seattle Mfg---
  Routing = Standard Receipt
 
Workaround
Change the receipt routing from direct delivery to standard receipt at the PO Shipment line level in the 'receiving controls' page.
