(Doc ID 330698.1)

Last updated on JUNE 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 11.0.3 to 12.2 [Release 11 to 12.2]
Oracle Inventory Management - Version 11.0.3 to 12.2 [Release 11.0 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
iProcurement - Version: 11.0.3


iProcurement Receive Orders displays Receipt Quantities for Multiple Distributions differently than
in Core Apps. Receipt quantities are displayed at the Distribution level rather than at the
Shipment level. Also, iProcurement allows individual distributions to be over received as long as
the total shipment is not over received when over receipt tolerance is 0% and action = Reject.


1. Create a requisition with 1 line, 1 shipment, and multiple distributions.
2. Approve the requisition and autocreate it onto a purchase order (ensure the shipment level on
the purchase order has over receipt tolerance set to 0% and action = Reject.
3. Perform receipts in iProcurement. Notice that each distribution is displayed as a separate
receipt line in iProcurement. Change the quantity for one or more of the distribution receipts to
be greater than the default value. iProcurement does not throw any errors
4. Attempt the last distribution receipt using the default quantity and get an error that the
quantity exceeds the tolerance limit. This message is displayed because iProcurement will not
allow the TOTAL quantity received for all distributions to exceed the TOTAL quantity ordered for
the shipment.


Users are confused by the quantity differences between Core Apps Purchasing and iProcurement.

NOTE:  The quantities are displayed the same in Purchase Order Summary / Distributions as in
iProcurement Receiving.
