Line Type Category Not Redefaulting On New Line When Changed (Doc ID 1609871.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 29, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Customer has default Line Type setup in Purchasing Options, and this defaults in when creating a new Line on PO or Requisition. When they change the Line Type, it does not default in the Category from this new Line Type, even when no changes have been made to the line.

This is the functionality as described in <Bug 772492> - CATEGORY IS NOT DEFUALTING IN CORRECTLY IN THE REQ AND PO FOR LINE TYPES - and is still functionality in R12

The problem is, the user cannot change it even before any updates are made to the document, and still get proper defaults to happen. User should be able to change the default, before any other changes are made, and have that Line fields then default in properly from new Line Type. Once changes are made, then changing Line Type should work as normal, and not redefault in the other values.
