R12: Grouping Functionality Of The Purchase Orders Through Autocreate Window Not Working Consistently (Doc ID 1518214.1)

Last updated on MARCH 15, 2022

Applies to:

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


Grouping functionality of the PO through Auto create window not working as expected.

While adding a requisition line (From a dropship PO) to the existing PO (with same item, need by date etc... ) it is merging to the PO line #1 and creating a new shipment, however
after the user cancels one of the shipment lines on this PO and adds the same Req line back , a new PO line is created instead of merging it to existing line as before.


Expecting the Req. line for the same item to be added to the same PO line even after cancelling the shipment line first time.

Steps to reproduce:

1. There are two Drop ship requisitions each with 1 line for the same item
With the first Req. Autocreated a PO using forms
Approved that PO

2. Tried to use the second Req. and tried to add the second Req. to the same PO through Autocreate window.
The two Req. lines are merged into 1 PO line.

Now the PO that is created has 1 line and 2 Shipments; which is fine.
Approved the PO

3. Opened the PO in the Purchase orders form
and go to Shipments
Menu > Tools > Cancel
Canceled one of the Shipment lines

4. So the shipment line is cancelled and the Quantity on the PO is decreased proportionately
Means, one of the Req. went back to the Autocreate Pool.

5. Now used the same Req. to Add to the same PO in Autocreate.
At this point, it is creating a new line.
