Goal

How to add some additional item attributes to be setup at the category level?
Natural Account, and possibly entire COA String related to category and Inventory expense items are defined at expense item mapping set. The default value that should be configured at Purchasing category should include effective date, Currency, Natural Account, primary Buyer, physical Nature, Matching Price tolerance, receiving controls and price tolerances. These values should default to any items associated to the category. If the values are not set up at category level then this causes issues with Non catalog and punchout requisitions.
