Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Open the affected document.
  4. Verify the over-delivery tolerance.
  5. Go to the Sourcing and Contracting work center.
  6. Go to the Contracts view.
  7. Open the associated contract.
  8. Verify the over-delivery tolerance is different from that of the Purchase Order.


The purchase request of the associated purchase order has a reference to a project purchase request so Project purhcase order details should be given priority as it is the preceding document.


If the purchase request of the affected purchase order has a reference to a project purchase request, the over-delivery tolerances are copied from the purchase request, and not from the contract.
