Contract Summary Values Incorrect When Open Item Added After Purchase Order (PO) is Created (Doc ID 1996767.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 04, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a purchase order is created from a contract via the 'Copy Contract' feature, the contract's Line Item released amount is updated based on the merchandise amount for each line in the purchase order that corresponds to a line in the contract.
A purchase order may have a portion of the payment held back as part of the contract. When there is a holdback amount to be added, a new purchase order line is added. The contract is referenced for the new line, but a contract line number cannot be added. As a result the holdback's line is counted as an open item against the contract and the contract's Open Item Released Amount value is updated with a negative value.
When a user forgets to add the contract ID to the holdback line when the purchase order is created and then later goes back to the purchase order and adds the contract ID, the contract's Open Item Released Amount value appears to double or triple count the holdback line. As a result the summary released amounts shown on the contract page is inaccurate.

Steps to reproduce the issue:


1) Create a new General Contract
2) Save the contract
3) Now Create a Credit PO and Reference above contract
4) Contract Amount shows correct open item reference amount
5) Now dispatch the PO
6) Now check the contract open item reference amount. Amount is doubled. Amount will keep on doubling whenever you have a change order and re-dispatch of the PO
