LCM Receipt Fails With Error: The PO_DISTRIBUTION_ID Specified Is Invalid

(Doc ID 2099895.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 08, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to receive LCM Purchase Order when the receipt has inventory and asset items the following error occurs.

Error: The PO_DISTRIBUTION_ID specified is invalid. The value specified (######) does not match the expected value (#####). 


One item is an Expense and the other is inventory on the same PO. 
When submitting receiving transaction processor, it receives the expense item first.
Once the LCM program runs, processor is trying to receive the inventory item.
At this point, it is expecting the distribution_id of the expense item.

When items are individually received or when using the receipt form there is no error. 
There are also no errors when using a non-LCM organization.
