2659811 - Supplier Not Populated Automatically in Purchase Order

Symptom

The Supplier is not populated automatically once the user selects the item from the custom catalog in the New Purchase Order.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Select New Purchase Order under Common Tasks
  3. Select the Start button after selecting the Catalog under the Add Items from Catalog section.
  4. Once you select the items in the catalog, click on the button Transfer Selected Items button.

The supplier is not populated once the items from the catalog are transferred to the purchase order.

Cause

There is no source of supply present for the product transferred from the custom catalog onto the purchase order. As a result, the Supplier field is blank.

Resolution

This is the standard system behavior.

The supplier will be updated and populated automatically only when there is a source of supply assigned to the product. If not, the supplier has to be manually maintained
