R12: AP: Invoice Find Screen Displays TIN Number For Some Individual Type Suppliers (Doc ID 1605139.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 06, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.0 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Taxpayer ID is being displayed in the Invoice Workbench - Find window, when searching for some Individual -type Suppliers.  The Taxpayer ID for Individual -type Suppliers is the individual "Social Security Number" (SSN).  Hence, due to CI/PI, the Find window should NOT display SSN for Individual -type Suppliers.

The issue reproduces ONLY for some Individual -type Suppliers.  There are cases where two suppliers, both Individuals -Type, both with SSNs.  One shows the SSN in the Invoice Find form and the other does not.



  1. Log into Oracle Applications using Payables responsibility.
  2. Open the Invoice Workbench
    (N) Invoice > Enter > Invoices
  3. Click on the "Find" (Flashlight icon) button.
  4. The Find window opens.
  5. Enter a Supplier Name and hit tab.
    The Supplier Number and Taxpayer ID number are filled in.

  6. On some Suppliers of type Individual, the Taxpayer ID is not displayed.
    This is expected as the value is a SSN.
    But, on others the Taxpayer ID is being displayed.


Upgraded to Release 12.1.3
