Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Why Invoice line level project information such as Project, Task, Expenditure Item Date and Expenditure Org are not copied to distributions if these attributes are updated on invoice line after distributions are saved.

Scenario 1:
1. Log into Payables Manager Responsibility
2. Invoices > Entry > Invoice
3. Invoice Workbench -> Enter header details -> Enter line details (line num, type, amount, Project, Task, Expenditure Type, Expenditure Item Date and Expenditure Organization)
4. Click Distributions -> Project related information is carried over from line to distribution
5. Click Save.

 

Scenario 2:
1. Log into Payables Manager Responsibility
2. Invoices > Entry > Invoice
3. Invoice Workbench -> Enter header details -> Enter line details (line num, type, amount) 
4. Click Distributions -> Save.
5. User missed on entering project information on line in step#3. So now they go back to the line and fill in Project, Task, Expenditure Type, Expenditure Item Date and Expenditure Organization
6. Click Distributions button -> Project information not carried over from line.

Scenario 1 works fine but in case of scenario 2 is this expected behavior by Oracle?
