Purchase Order (PO) With Status of In Process Allows Receipt Via Receipt Creation Form (Doc ID 2525443.1)

Last updated on JULY 08, 2020

Applies to:

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


Observe that a PO (with and without revision) with Status of "In Process" allows Receipt via Receiving -Receipt creation form.

This is different in iProcurement which prevents processing of receipt; however users can create a receipt via the Receipt Creation form, even though the PO status is "In Process".

Understand that if the PO is not approved (Requires Reapproval / In Process), the receiving form must not allow the purchase order receiving to proceed.

If the PO is 'In Process', how can the shipment status be in 'Approved' status?

Wherever the PO shipment approved flag is "Y", users are able to query the PO in the receipt form and if approved_flag is "R" then users are not able to query the PO via the Receiving - Receipt form.

It is possible that the PO could have been approved with some shipments to be begin and is then revised?

Under this scenario, PO header will be in either Requires Reapproval or In Process status.

However shipments that are in approved status can still be received.

Because as per client/users concerns that will become audit issue, if PO header status is not finally approved then how system can allow to create a receipt for expense item but other way round same is getting restricted via iProcurement receiving item features (same PO's with Approval flag as "YES" is not allowing to create receipts) via iProcurement but allowing via PO-Receiving Receipt creation form)?
