Item Description Update Does Not Update Existing Purchase Order, Blanket Agreement, or Requisition (Doc ID 273873.1)

Last updated on MARCH 31, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 11.5.9 to 12.2 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When Item descriptions are updated in Inventory -> Master items the changes do not flow through to the description field on Blanket PO's lines. BPA lines which are effective over a long period of time are not updated and hence the releases are created with the old item descriptions. User has to expire the lines and enter new lines so that future releases are created with updated item description.

Standard Purchase Orders are also still reflecting the old item description as well.
