2532051 - Purchase Order Being Over Delivered


System is allowing you to create more than one Goods and Service Acknowledgement for a Purchase Order which have been already delivered.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Select Purchase Orders view.
  3. Search for Purchase Order XXX.
  4. Open the Purchase Order XXX.
  5. Click View All.
  6. Go to Items tab.
  7. Select the line Item affected.
  8. Click Document Flow subtab.

Notice that there are two Goods and Services Receipts with different number but for the same items and price.

XXX = Purchase Order ID


The check box under Basic Data subtab Unlimited Over-Delivery is selected. This Flag indicates that it is possible to create delivery document which exceeds the ordered quantity.


The system is working as expected. For future occurrences, you can uncheck this box and the system will not allow you to over delivery Purchase Orders.
