Symptoms

On the printed purchase order, the Ship Via Code is printed and not the description of the Ship Via.

On the Purchasing Business Unit Options, there are 3 codes defined that will print in the upper right header of the purchase order.


Freight Terms Code = DES - Description = Destination.
Payment Terms ID = 00 - Description = Due Now
Ship Via Code = COMMON - Description = Common Carrier

When the purchase order is printed, in the upper right corner are these terms.

FREIGHT TERMS prints as "Destination" >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this is the code description
PAYMENT TERMS prints as "Due Now">>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this is the code description
SHIP VIA prints as "Common">>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> this is the code


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Note the Payment Terms, Freight Terms and Ship Via values and descriptions populated at the Purchasing Options page.
2. Using a Supplier that defaults these values from "higher level" create a purchase order and dispatch the PO.
3. Review the printed purchase order and you will notice that for the Payment Terms and Freight Terms the actual description is used. But for the Ship Via - the system prints the Code value (common) and not the description value (common carrier)
