Purchase Order Definitions

Back to Browse Topics - > Purchase Order

Line Items Combined on PO

When a requisition contains two or more lines with the exact item description, the PO will combine the quantities of the like lines into one line. This may result in the quantity of one item being inflated and the other item not being ordered at all. This is standard Oracle functionality. To prevent lines from combining, make each item description unique by entering a “space”, a "period", a "dash" or “Item #1, Item #2, etc.” at the beginning of each item description.
