Information in this document applies to any platform.


In R12.1.3 environment, upgraded from

When creating a Contract Purchase Agreement within Buyer Work Center, then attempt to cancel the creation after the Purchase Order (PO) Header Descriptive Flex Field (DFF) has been activated, a
message from webpage pop up warning is displayed stating Form validation failure, displaying the mandatory segments of the PO Header DFF.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Set up header level DFF fields for a Contract Agreement.         
2. Make these DFFs required.                                        
3. In Buyer Work Center, go to Create Contract Purchase Agreement  page.                                                               
4. Enter some values. But leave the required DFF fields empty.      
5. Click on the 'Cancel' button.


This issue is not experienced when cancelling a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) creation (using the same steps) when a BPA is cancelled. In the case of the BPA, a cancellation
returns immediately back to the Agreements main page.
