3039758 - The "Evaluated Receipt Settlement" flag is Unchecked Automatically when Item Type is Changed to "Expense" in Purchase Order


Supplier master data is flagged with "Evaluated Receipt Settlement" (ERS). If a purchase order is created for that supplier, and the Item type is changed to "Expense", the flag of "Evaluated Receipt Settlement" is unchecked automatically.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Select view Purchase Orders
  3. Select new Purchase Order(PO) and create a PO for that supplier which is relevant for "Evaluated Receipt Settlement"
  4. Under Items tab, change item type to expense
  5. ERS flag is unchecked automatically


For ERS(Evaluated Receipt Settlement) invoicing, this is the current system behavior. For expense Items, ERS is more likely not to be used, so it is defaulted as "Unchecked".


You can manually flag the checkbox while creating the purchase order.
