R12: AP: Why Are Duplicate Taxpayer ID's Allowed During Supplier Import But Not When Creating or Updating Suppliers Using the Form?

(Doc ID 2049677.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 08, 2016

Applies to:

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

Goal

It is possible to import suppliers that have duplicate taxpayer ID's.  However, when creating or updating suppliers in the Supplier page, the following message is seen:

There is currently another supplier in the system with the same Taxpayer id.

The profile option, POS: Allow Suppliers with Duplicate Taxpayer ID, is NULL at all levels.

Why is the behavior different?
