Why is Expense Account On PO Defaulting From Buyer Employee Record? Charge Account Coming From Buyer Employee Record (Doc ID 1563312.1)

Last updated on JUNE 15, 2017

Applies to:

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

Goal

In Release 12, When creating an Expense destination distribution having no Requestor defined, the charge account is coming from the Buyer employee record.  Is is expected
that error "PO charge account : Please enter a value for this required field" be raised as this is the error raised in 11i.
 
Is this a bug or has there been some change to the way Expense account is defaulted?
