Setup Different Numbering Sequences For Different Purchase Order Types (Doc ID 850462.1)

Last updated on JUNE 19, 2010

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version: 11.5.10.2 and later   [Release: 11.5 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

On 11.5.10,  Depending on Requisition type different purchase documents are created, there may be a business requirement to have different numbering for different Purchase Order documents.  

Currently users are unable to differentiate the Purchase Order documents as the numbering is taken in sequence by auto numbering .

How is is possible to setup distinct  Numbering for different types of Purchase Order Documents: Blanket PO, Standard PO, Contract PO, Planned PO, Complex PO?

For example:

- All Standard PO numbers should start with '2'.

- All Blanket PO numbers should start with '3'.

- All Contract PO numbers should start with '4'.

- All Planned PO numbers should start with '5'.
