Able to Change Vendor After Purchase Order is Dispatched When Reapprove Checkbox is Checked in Change Template (Doc ID 2103083.1)

Last updated on APRIL 01, 2019

Applies to:

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


The Vendor ID field is editable in the Purchase Order Page when the Reapprove checkbox at the Change Template setup level is checked in Set up Financials/ Supply Chain > Product Related > Procurement Options > Purchasing > Change Template. The field should be editable on dispatched POs only when the Track Change flag is checked in the Change Template.

See detailed replication steps here.

Steps to replicate the issue:

1. No flag set for VENDOR_ID in Change Template.
AWE not enabled.
Pick a dispatched PO or create a new one and dispatch it.
Click Change Order.
Vendor ID is not editable.
2. Reapprove flag set in Change Template for VENDOR_ID.
Click Change order.
Vendor ID is editable.
We can save the changed PO with the new vendor. This is incorrect: if you change Vendor ID field then PO has to be re-dispatched.
