Information in this document applies to any platform.


When changing the Vendor on a purchase order, the account value on PO_LINE_DISTRIB is changed to the account from the Item definition.

Chartfield information should not change with the vendor change.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Verify Item Account value = A100.
2. Create a purchase order for Vendor 001, and the above item. Drill to the Distribution and use Account = B200.
3. Save the PO.
4. Display the PO and change the Vendor from 001 to Vendor = 002. Save the PO.
5. Review the PO Distribution. Account value is now A100.
