2244766 - Change Receiving Site In Purchase Order

Symptom

You have created and sent the purchase order to your supplier. You want to be able to change the receiving site of a particular line item in the same purchase order.  

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Navigate to the Common Tasks view and choose the option New Purchase Order.
  3. Enter the relevant mandatory fields and choose the Order button.
  4. Navigate to Items tab and choose the sub-tab Delivery.
  5. Select the line item for which you have to change the receiving site.
  6. You see that it is not possible to change the value in the field Site.

Cause

Once the purchase order is sent to your supplier the system will not allow you to change the Site to which the product should be delivered. The Ship-To location can be changed since a site can have multiple Ship-To locations under a site.
