PO Create Makes the PO ID with 10 Characters When Starting Sequence is 000 and 7 Characters Has Been Set (Doc ID 2388290.1)

Last updated on JUNE 27, 2018

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

After setting the Auto Numbering of Purchase Orders via the Common Definitions, the PO Create process then creates Purchase Orders that do not apply the auto-numbering setting, but only if the Starting Sequence is '000'.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate to: Main Menu>Set Up Financials/Supply Chain>Common Definitions>Codes and Auto Numbering>Auto Numbering
2. Change the Max Length from 10 to 7 and the Last Number Issued to 9999 - save it
3. Navigate to:Main Menu>Set Up Financials/Supply Chain>Business Unit Related>Purchasing>Purchasing Defintion
4. Add the Beginning Sequence 000 to Purchase Orders
5. Navigate to: Main Menu>Purchasing>Purchase Orders>Add/Update POs
6. Create a Purchase Order
7. Save it and notice that the PO ID has 7 digits
8. Create a requisition and save it
9. Navigate to: Main Menu>Purchasing>Purchase Orders>Stage/Source Requests>Requisition Selection
10. Select the Requisition that was created - Save it
11. Navigate to: Main Menu>Purchasing Purchase Orders>Stage/Source Requests>PO Calculations
12. Select the BU of the Requisition and Save, then Run the process
13. Navigate to: Main Menu>Purchasing>Purchase Orders>Stage/Source Requests>PO Creation
14. Select the BU of the Requisition
15. Save and Run the process
16. Navigate to: Main Menu>Purchasing>Purchase Orders>Add/Update POs
17. Search for the PO, notice that the PO ID has 10 digits

Due to this issue, system is not creating the POs with PO IDs in accordance to the setting in Auto Numbering for the Starting Sequence of '000'
