Last updated on DECEMBER 21, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 to 12.2.5 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, HTML Orders

In Buyer Work Center (BWC) is the functional solution of how to  change vendor site without:
1.) Un-reserving & Re-reserving funds
2.) Change General Ledger (GL) Date automatically (profile option)
3.) Un-reserving Purchase Order(PO) at all.

However, the BWC is validating that the project/tasks must to be open for all distributions.
This validation should not occur for federal customers.

 Federal customers could have a multi-year PO with  each distribution representing a year / budget year / project / task.
 If the customer wants to change the vendor site part way through the PO life , they should not have to "open" project/tasks
 which artificially extending the expenditure date/calendar on the project/task,
 disable Cross Vendor References (CVR),  enable funds, or enable budget years that are closed.

When attempting to query and update purchase order the following error occurs.

ERROR
-----------------------
Project information on the distribution is not valid. The expenditure item date is not within the active dates of the task


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate Buyer Work Center
2. Find order
3. Change supplier site at the header level
4. Receive error.
