Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version: 12.0 and later   [Release: 12 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:POXPOEPO.FMB - Enter Purchase Orders GUI
PBWC : Purchasing Buyer Work Center

Symptoms

In Buyer Work Center you find that when creating an Order, in the Distribution tab,  the Requester Name field does not display the requester's name, even after entering the field and saving the Purchase Order (PO). If you search for the same PO in the PO Entry Form and go to Distributions the requester name can be seen in the 'Requester Name' field. This issue occurs only when Requester is defined in HR as a  contingent worker.
The issue is also noticed in the Enter Purchase Order form.

Steps To Reproduce:
1. Purchasing > Professional Buyer Workcenter > Tab: Orders.
2. Enter: Supplier name and site
3. Tab: Lines: Enter item, quantity, need by date
4. Tab: Distribution > Go to Details > Enter Requester name and deliver to location.
5. Button Apply
6. Button Save
