Blank or Dummy Rows are Shown in the Item ID Lookup on Purchase Orders (Doc ID 2293603.1)

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


We have about 9 Item Categories added to our Item Catalog so that all Items under those 9 Categories are listed for Users to choose. However we have now inactivated all of the Items except the ones under one Item Category.   Now we see some 'dummy rows' for each Category where all the items have been inactivated.

If there are no active items within a Category, then the Category should not display in the Item Lookup with blank or 'dummy' rows.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Requester Setup - check Use Only Assigned Catalogs.
  2. Assign Catalog = HARDWARE.
  3. Create a new Requisition
  4. Click the Item ID lookup - notice that the items assigned to the Categories are listed but there are also 2 extra rows. One for each Category that is
  5. listed in the Catalog and has no active items.
