Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.2.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.6 version, HTML Orders

After updating PO using excel sheet, the - in the PO number is no longer visible in the core PO form or in the PO tables

Steps to Reproduce :
1. Create a PO from forms and approve e.g. 081817-TEST is the PO number.
2. Now change the Qty from BWC -> Update from Excel. (Note: PO number is not being changed but the Qty)
3. When checking from form, the PO number changes to 081817TEST without the '-'
4. When checking from BWC, the PO number still shows as 081817-TEST.

The same issue can be seen if the PO is updated using the BSO webservice instead of update from excel
