APXINWKB: Invoice Get The Incorrect Legal Entity Defaulted (Doc ID 875182.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 26, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version: 12.0.0 to 12.0.6
This problem can occur on any platform.
FORM:APXINWKB.FMB - Invoice Workbench

Symptoms

On 12.0.6 find the Legal Entity value on the Invoices Workbench (APXINWKB.fmb) is being defaulted to the same Legal Entity regardless of the operating unit that Legal Entity is attached to.

The implementation is an upgrade from 11i where there are 3 operating units and 3 legal entities,
each operating unit is tied to an individual legal entity.

When the invoice header information is entered, if the Customer Taxpayer ID field is not chosen,
the system by defaults populates the Legal Entity field with the same value which is the first
legal entity on the list of values for Customer Taxpayer ID.

NOTE: In Oracle Payables, the Legal Entity field is derived based on the information from the
Customer Taxpayer ID field, this field lists all the tax registrations for the installation.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect the system defaults the legal entity based on the legal entity attached to the operating
unit, the operating unit is entered / defaulted when entering the invoice header.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login to Oracle Payables with Operating Unit B.
2. Navigate to: Invoices / Entry / Invoices
3. Notice the Operating Unit field is defaulted from the responsibility setup
4. Enter the supplier name and site, this is the issue: The system derives the Legal Entity unit always the Legal Entity A that is tied to operating unit A and not to operating Unit B.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users need to enter the customer taxpayer ID manually in order to get the correct Legal Entity tied to the transaction.
