2774290 - Purchase Order History Report Not Displaying Purchase Request for Some Records

Symptom

Purchase Order History Report Not Displaying Purchase Request for Some Records.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders Work Center.
  2. Go to the Reports View.
  3. Search and open the Purchase Order History report.
  4. In the Selection tab, enter the respective fields.
  5. Go to the View Tab.
  6. Add the the Purchase Request ID to Row Fields.
  7. Go back to the Selection Tab.
  8. Click on the Apply button.

Some records display the Purchase Request ID as '#' while the Purchase Order has a Purchase Request.

Cause

The Purchase Request ID doesn't show for the rows corresponding to delivery items and invoice items for the Purchase Order because currently the Data Source only supports showing the Purchase Request ID for the Purchase Orders which don't have any follow-up document.

To double check this, open the respective Purchase Order and go to the Document Flow, if there is any document displaying after the Purchase Order, then the Purchase Request ID will not display in the report.

Resolution

You can proceed with using another Data Source "Purchase Order Delivery Reliability" or building a report on top of the data source to have the Purchase Request ID being displayed.
