BOMPKMUD And BOMFDMCO (Mass Changes) Using Old Values Instead of Null (Doc ID 1950337.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 02, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Bills of Material - Version 12.0.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
As per Oracle's own documentation, "If you do not wish to replace the values for the Supply Type, Supply Subinventory, and Supply Locator fields, you must enter the current value when executing a mass change. If you leave the Supply Type, Supply Subinventory, and Supply Locator fields blank when entering component changes, their values will be replaced by the blank (null) value when the mass change is executed."

THIS IS NOT WORKING. If you leave these values blank (NULL), it does NOT replace the old values with NULL, it tries to use the old values and BOMPKMUD errors out (if the 'New' item is not assigned the same Item Subinventory/Locator as the 'Update' item).

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expect to be able to leave the values for Supply Type, Supply Subinventory, and Supply Locator fields Null in the mass change and have the values set to NULL as per the documentation.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Mass Change
2. Leave the values for Supply Type, Supply Subinventory, and Supply Locator null
3. The mass change process errors as it is trying to use the old values.
