Information in this document applies to any platform.


After setting the profile PO: Use PODI AutoCreate to Yes (applicable prior to release 12.2.4 only)  and with no default charge account setup defined,
when attempting to autocreate a new order from a Sourcing RFQ,  the following error occurs:

If there is a default account defined at the employee level,  the Purchase Order creation workes fine; no error  occurs.

Purchase Order Creating could not be initiated. Please check with your system administrator

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