Last updated on MARCH 15, 2022

Applies to:

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


Users have taken an encumbered Requisition, autocreated a Purchase Order from this requisition and then reduced the amount/quantity of the Purchase Order

What happens to the remaining original encumbered quantity/amount that was not utilized on the Purchase Order as this requisition is not available partially to use.

Steps to Reproduce the issue


  1. Users create Requisition encumbered for $100 
  2. Requisition is then autocreated into a PO where they amount is reduced to $75 and Encumbered
  3. The original Requisition reservation still has $25 remaining - what happens to this amount - where is it ?
