Buyer Work Center (BWC) Document Builder Groups Requisition Lines with Different Item Descriptions (Doc ID 2095968.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
PBWC : Professional Buyer Work Center

Symptoms

In Buyer Work Center (BWC), Document Builder is used to autocreate a Purchase Order from multiple Requisition lines.  Although the lines have the same Item number, each has a different value for Item Description.  Even so, they are automatically grouped together into a single PO line.  The expected behavior is that lines with different Item Descriptions will not be grouped together, but instead be created into separate PO lines.

This problem only occurs using Buyer Work Center.  It does not occur when using the AutoCreate Documents form.
