1659982 - Wrong Bill-To Address in Purchase Order Fact Sheet or Form


You defined a Bill-To Address in the Org Structure for the company org unit additionally to the main company address. You create a new purchase order and the Bill-To Address is not fetched. The company main address is populated instead.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Click on the relevant purchase order ID to open the fact sheet.
  4. The Bill-To Party field is incorrectly populated.


This is the standard behavior. The bill-to address of the company org unit is not distributed to the underlying org units (e.g. Supplier Invoicing org unit). Therefore it is not available as bill-to party.


As a workaround, you can change the main address of the supplier invoicing org unit to the bill-to address. The desired address will then be shown in the purchase order.

  1. Go to the Organizational Management work center.
  2. Choose the task Edit Org Structures.
  3. Mark the relevant Supplier Invoicing org unit.
  4. Go to the Addresses tab.
  5. Maintain the desired Bill-To address under the Main Address section.
  6. Choose Save.
  7. Choose Activate -> Activate Selected and Dependent Org Units.
