THE PO CHARGE ACCOUNT IS IGNORED WHEN RECEIVING INVENTORY EXPENSE ITEMS, WHY? (Doc ID 1510803.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 13, 2017

Applies to:

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

Goal

The PO charge account has been customized through the PO account generator. It is not picked by when receiving the deliver transaction into inventory for expense inventory items.

Why?

 

Users have altered the PO account workflow to generate a different charge
Account. This defaults correctly at PO level, but this account is not used when receiving is done.
The account that is being selected  is the standard account which is derived from the Inventory parameters.

In case of an 'Inventory Expense Item' why is the charge account on the PO not used?

Item = Inventory expense item
(Master item, costing tab: Inventory Asset Value unchecked)

Destination type = Inventory
