2741056 - Shipping Instructions header text missing in PO form


In the business process additional header texts have been added in the Purchase Orders, for example: Shipping Instructions. The additional Shipping Instructions are requested to be issued in the output form and sent to the Supplier. Despite adding the additional header texts in the Purchase Order, these are not automatically visible in the PO output form, only the contents of the Header Text type F01 is issued.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Purchase Order using the APP 'Manage Purchase Orders' or the Webgui tile 'Create Purchase Order - Advanced'. 
  2. Add header texts in the Header Text Field and the Shipping instructions Field.
  3. Save the Purchase Order.  
  4. When reviewing the print preview of the PO form, only the text entered into the Header Text is visible. 


Missing Print Text Customising


In standard only the PO header text type F01 is delivered. If additional text types are requested, these can be added by following steps below: 
Open the APP 'Manage your Solution' > 'Configure your Solution' > search for SSCUI 102270 > choose 'Define Texts for Purchase Order' > Add New Entry

* Note: If you plan to output more than one Header or item Text type, make sure each type used has a separate descending Print Sequence Number
** To be able to print texts for limit items you need to add entries for the corresponding 'Enhanced Limit' item category
