Symptoms


Supplier Applicability shows withholding tax codes in the list of values that have been disabled.

Those tax codes should not appear in the lov when entering a new line in Supplier Applicability form.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Responsibility: Oracle Payables 
2. Path: Colombia Localization -> Supplier Withholding Applicability (JLZZPSWH.fmb)

Supplier Applicability shows withholding tax codes that have been disabled.

The disabled tax codes have been assigned in some suppliers.
There is no withholding tax calculation and this is correct, but the system should restrict the option to show these withholding tax codes.

3. For example

When entering a NEW line, the system is showing inactive tax codes in the list of values.

It is possible to assign an inactive tax code to the Supplier Applicability.
Even though this tax code is not applied on the invoice, it has the following impact:

If there is two tax codes, for example, with very similar name (one active and the other inactive) the user
can select the one which is inactive by mistake and then the correct one will not be applied on the invoice.

This list of values should not show inactive tax codes neither to let the users to select them.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users can make mistakes of assigning inactive tax codes in Supplier Applicability form instead of selecting the correct tax codes.
If the company has thousands of suppliers and this information is entered by users located in different countries the risk of mistakes is very high.
