Entering Requisition Lines

Use the Items tabbed region in the Requisitions window to enter requisition line information.You can choose a predefined item or you can an enter an item without an item number.To enter requisition line information:Navigate to the Items tabbed region in the Requisitions window.1. Enter a line Type for the requisition line. Line types help you define how you want to categorize your items. The default for this field is the Line Type from the Purchasing Options window.  If you change this line type, defaults from the Line Types window appear in the Category, UOM and Price fields, and the cursor moves to the Category field.For purposes of requisition line entry, line types are handled in three classes: amount–based, quantity–based, and outsideprocessing. The defaults that appear when you enter a line type are cleared if you change the line type to a different class. Once you have committed a line, you can change the line type only to another line type of the same class.If Oracle Services Procurement is implemented, you can also select a fixed price service line type. If you select the fixed price service line type the Item, Quantity, UOM, and Price fields are not available for update.2.1  For quantity–based line types and outside processing line types, enter the Item you want to request. Purchasing displays defaults for purchasing category, item description, unit of measure, and unit price for this item. Enter the Revision (if any) that corresponds to the item you want to order.2.2. Enter the purchasing Category. You cannot change the category if you provide an item number in the Item field.2.3. Enter the item Description to explain the item in further detail. When you enter an item number, Purchasing displays the item description from the Items window. You can change thisdescription only if the Allow Description Update attribute for the item is enabled. 2.4. Enter the unit of measure (UOM) you want to use for your requisition line. If you enter an item number, Purchasing defaults the unit of measure for this item. If you change this value, the quantity is rounded again if appropriate, and the price is recalculated. If you enter a line type that is amount based, Purchasing uses the unit of measure that you assigned to that line type in the Line Types window. You cannot change the unit of measure of amount based items.3.1. Enter the Quantity you want to request for the item. You can enter decimal quantities, but you must enter a value greater than 0.  You can use the Catalog button to get price breaks for different quantities from catalog quotations or blanket purchase agreements. If Quantity Rounding is enabled, Purchasing either displays the rounded quantity you should have entered in a warning message or it updates the quantity to the appropriate rounded quantity. The rounding is based on the Unit of Issue (or primary unit of measure if the Unit of Issue is not defined) and the Rounding Factor defined for the item in Inventory. Rounding is up or down to the nearest whole Unit of Issue/primary unit of measure using the rounding factor.3.2. Enter the unit Price for the item. You can enter the price in decimal format. You must enter a value greater than or equal to 0. If you enter an item number, Purchasing defaults a price for this item, but you can change this value. Your price may change if you enter a suggested supplier and a source document later.Unit prices are in the functional currency. If you need to enter a foreign currecny, see the instructions below.If you create a requisition line for an amount based line type, Purchasing sets the price to 1, and you cannot change it.4.  Enter the Need By date and time for the requested items. This is required only for planned items. You must enter a date greater than or equal to the requisition creation date.The Charge Account is rolled up from a single distribution after the distribution is created. If more that one distribution is created for the line, Multiple is displayed.The lower part of the screen below the Lines tabbed region consists of optional fields for which the default can be set in the Requisition Preferences window. 5. Enter or use the default Tax Code for taxable items.The tax code defaults from the Tax Defaults region in the Purchasing Options window. Accept the default tax code or select another. You cannot override the tax code if the profile option Tax: Allow Override of Tax Code is set to No, or the shipment has been received.If on the requisition you change a tax source, such as Supplier or Site, then Purchasing does not redefault a new Tax Code on the current line, but does default it on new lines. The same is true even after you override the Tax Code: Purchasing does not redefault it on current lines when you change a tax source.Note: If you change the Tax Code after already creating distributions for the line, the associated Recovery Rate on thosedistributions is not redefaulted for the new Tax Code. 6. If Oracle Services Procurement is implemented and you have selected a fixed price based line type, enter the Amount.7.1. Enter the Destination TypeExpense – The goods are delivered to the requestor at an expense location. The destination subinventory is not applicable.Inventory – The goods are received into inventory upon delivery.Shop Floor – The goods are delivered to an outside processing operation defined by Work in Process. Purchasing uses this option for outside processing items. If Enterprise Asset Management is installed, you can use this destination for one–time (description based) and non–stocked items to be delivered to a maintenance work order location.7.2. Enter the name of the employee who is requesting the item. You must provide a Requestor before you can approve the requisition. The default is the requisition preparer.7.3. Enter the Organization.7.4. Enter the delivery Location for the requested items. Purchasing defaults the deliver–to location that you assign to the employee in the Enter Person window. You must provide a deliver–to location before you can approve the requisition. Before the source of the line can be Inventory, the deliver–to location must be linked to a customer address in the Customer Addresses window. 7.5. Enter the Subinventory. This field applies only when the Destination Type is Inventory.8.1. Enter the Source type. The source type determines the source of the requisitioned items. The choice you have in this field is dependent on the PO: Legal Requisition Type profile option. You may be able to use either the Inventory or the Supplier source type, or both types. Note: If you have both options, you can source requisition lines independently of the document type. You can even mix inventory and supplier sourced requisition lines in the same requisition. Purchasing creates one internal sales order for all inventory source type requisition lines on this requisition. The supplier source type requisition lines are placed onto purchase orders with the AutoCreate Documents window.Even if you are restricted to one type, Purchasing restricts the source type as appropriate for the item. If you are restricted to Inventory but you are requesting a Supplier item (Purchased Item attribute – Yes, Internal Ordered Item attribute – No), the source type can be only Supplier. Conversely, if you are restricted to Supplier requisitions and you ask for an Inventory item (Purchased Item attribute – No, Internal Ordered Item attribute – Yes), the source type can be only Inventory. This is allowed because a requestor may not know the item source type.For Inventory source type lines, you can enter a default Organization and Subinventory. If you specify a subinventory foran internal requisition line, Order Management reserves the goods and uses only the specified subinventory for allocation. If the goods do not exist at the specified subinventory, Order Management backorders them, even if they do exist in anothersubinventory.You can not enter an internal order for an Oracle Services Procurement fixed priced service requisition line type.For the Supplier source type, enter the suggested Supplier, Supplier Site, Contact, and Phone. For the Inventory source type, enter the Organization and Subinventory.9.1. If Oracle Process Manufacturing (OPM) application is installed and implemented, you are a process manufacturing user, and the selected purchasing organization is a process organization, then the process fields are enabled. The three process fields are Secondary UOM, Secondary Quantity, and Grade.Note: Both Source and Destination organizations should be either process enabled or not process enabled.1. If the OPM item is dual UOM controlled, then:The Secondary UOM defaults to the value specified in the inventory item master table. You cannot change this field.Depending on the selected dual UOM indicator, the Secondary Quantity is calculated.• Non–dual: The secondary quantity is disabled.• Fixed: The secondary quantity is calculated using the conversion routine. You can change the secondary quantity and the primary Order Quantity is updated to reflect the change.• Default: The secondary quantity is calculated using the conversion routine. You can change the secondary quantitywithin the deviation limits specified in the item definition in  OPM. The Primary Order Quantity is not updated to reflect thechange.• No default: The secondary quantity is not calculated but you can enter the secondary quantity within the deviation limits specified in the item definition. The primary Order Quantity is not updated to reflect the change.2. If the OPM item is grade controlled, then the Grade field is enabled and you can enter the grade. Grade represents therequested quality control grade for the selected item. Note: All process items are flagged as Purchasable for use by Oracle Purchasing when they are synchronized to Oracle Inventory. 10. Save your work. If you save a requisition line without entering a distribution, Purchasing tries to generate a distribution line for you, using the Account Generator based on the information you have entered. If you want your distribution account numbers to be generated based on project information, you must enter project information in the Requisition Preferences or Requisition Distributions windows before committing the distribution line. To enter line source details for the Supplier source typeNavigate to the Source Details tabbed region. When the source type is Supplier, you can enter the Note to Buyer, Buyer, RFQ Required, Supplier Item number, source Document Type (Blanket, Contract, or Quotation), source Document, and document Line Number.If you have chosen a global agreement as the source document the Global box will be checked and the owning organization displayed.If Oracle Project Contracts is installed you can enter Contract number and Rev (version number) in this region. Additionalproject contract information can be entered in the Distributions window. To enter line detailsNavigate to the Details tabbed region. You can enter a Justification, Note to Receiver, Transaction Nature, Reference Number, UN Number, and Hazard class. To enter line currency information1. Navigate to the Currency tabbed region.2. Enter a suggested currency for the requisition line. This must be an enabled code from the Currency window. The cursor enters the remaining currency fields only if you have entered a currency here.3. Purchasing supplies you with one of two predefined currency rate types: User or EMU Fixed. A rate type of User means that you can enter a conversion rate between the foreign currency (or transaction currency in a document entry window) and the base currency (or functional currency, defined in your set of books). A rate type of EMU Fixed means that if either your transaction currency or your functional currency is Euro (the European Monetary Unit currency) and the other is another European currency, Purchasing automatically enters a conversion Rate Date and Rate for you that you cannot change.You can define additional currency rate types in the Define Daily Conversion Rate Types form, and you can enter User or one of your additional types. 4. Enter the currency rate date.5. Enter the currency conversion rate. Purchasing overrides this default when you are entering requisition lines if the rate type is not User and if you have established a rate for the rate type and date. To enter outside processing information:Select the Outside Services button to open the Outside Services window for outside processing line types.
