iSupplier Portal Trailing Whitespace Characters Causing Problems In Shipment Number (Doc ID 2729887.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 18, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle iSupplier Portal - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In iSupplier Portal during ASN entry, the form does not automatically trim trailing whitspace characters in Shipment Number field. Various end of line characters and tab characters, can cause problems  downstream in processing activities.  These pages are used extensively by external supplier third parties, who cannot be extensively trained as with internal users.

If an ASN shipment number is copy-pasted from a spreadsheet, then an EOL character will be present in the field and will be saved that way to the database (rcv_shipment_headers table).

Is there some configuration or setup that can now be amended or implemented, or is this expected behavior and if so what can be done to correct it?
