Create Supplemental Bill By Line Action Missing Cost Type For Accessorials (Doc ID 1642865.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Transportation Management - Version 6.3.1 to 6.3.4 [Release 6.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When performing a Create Supplemental Bill By Line action, and after choosing a Description dropdown = ‘Accessorial’, entered the Accessorial Code, entered the Invoice Amt and Payment Amount, click Save, then Finish and the Supplemental Bill is created with a line item that is missing the Cost Type.

The user cannot allocate the supplemental bill, nor approve it. The work around is to manually edit the bill line and choose the Cost Type, save the bill, then can allocate and approve it.

The expected results is by choosing the Description dropdown (accessorial), it would be stored in the Bill line cost type = Accessorial.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

Financials -> Bill Management -> Billing
Do a blind query and you should see 3 Bills.
If you do Action -> Financials -> Bills -> Create Supplemental Bill By Line
in the form that opens, you will see a column called Description with a drop down.
The values in this drop down corresponds to Cost Type. But choosing this value does not populate the Cost Type in the Line Item form.
