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


Purchase order (PO) communication method is defaulting incorrectly. Supplier is set to communication method = none. When reapproving a purchase order, the communication method email address is defaulting to whatever was used when the purchase order was first approved and emailed.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. PO is created for a vendor where po communication method is none.
  2. When the PO is approved, email is null as expected.
  3. An email address is manually entered while approving the PO.
  4. A change is made to the PO so that it requires re-approval.
  5. When re-approving the PO, it now defaults to the manually entered email address on step#3.
