Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
- Go to the Invoice Scanning view.
- Select Scan ID ABC (ABC represents the Scan ID document).
- Click on Create Invoice button.
- Click on Check button.
The Product Category was not determined.
It is a system behavior.
It is not possible to determine the Product Category when using a free text item for Scanned Supplier Invoices.
When using the Scanned Invoice document, system will only recognize the Product Category if there is a Product ID maintained, if it is a case of free text, then system will not maintain the Product Category because it won't be able to recognize it.
As a workaround, you can enter it manually or through a PDI.
