Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Purchasing module, PO line can only be cancelled one line at a time via 'Purchase Order Summary' form. 'Purchase Orders' form or 'Buyer Work Center' and PO revision will be automatically incremented every time after PO line was cancelled. Hence, after multiple PO line was cancelled, the PO revision will have same number of cancelled PO lines increment.

As per

Purchasing User Guide
Chapter 4
Section - Document Revision Numbering
On Page 4-106, the 'Document Revision Rules' summary tables

this revision increment behaviour is intended design.

However, due to some Business requirement, some Customer might expected the PO to only has 1 revision increment after multiple PO lines were cancelled.
