PO Auto Source (PO_AUTO_SRC) Creates Purchase Orders (PO) with Distribution Percentage <> 100% (Doc ID 2113451.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2019

Applies to:

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


A requisition is created with 1 line for quantity 200 and has multiple distributions.  The Req Line also references a contract.

The distribution percentages on the requisition are:

* line 1 is 50% @ qty=100
* line 2 is 25% @ qty=50
* line 3 is 25% @ qty=50

After the requisition is sourced, the Purchase Order Distribution percentages are changed for Distribs 1 and 3.  These changes made makes the requisition available for resourcing.

* line 1 is now 25% @ qty = 50
* line 2 is 25% @ qty=50
* line 3 is now 50% @ qty=100

At this time, the requisition has an Open Quantity to be sourced.  Run the PO_AUTO_SRC process once again.  The new PO that is created has a distribution percentage not equal to 100%.  This purchase order can be processed through dispatch.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1.) BU default liquidation method is Quantity, distribution method is Quantity
2.) Create a general contract.
3.) Create a contract release requisition with 3 PO distributions
  * line 1 is 50% @qty=100
  * line 2 is 25% @qty=50
  * line 3 is 25% @qty=50
4.) Budget check and Approve
5.) Run auto source
6.) Edit the PO created, edit the PO distribution.
  * line 1 is now 25% @qty = 50
  * line 2 is 25% @qty=50
  * line 3 is now 50% @qty=100
7.) budget check, approve, dispatch PO.
8.) Check requisition, requisition has remaining pre-encumbrance.
9.) Re-run autosource for the same requisition
10.) PO is created with only one distribution, 50% @qty=25
11.) Do not edit PO, budget check, approve, dispatch PO. - it is allowed.
