Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase requests and orders work center
  2. Select Purchase Orders view
  3. Search for the Purchase Order which you want to finish manually
  4. Select Finish-> Delivery and Invoicing
  5. Select Save
  6. Dump/Unexpected error encountered


There can be many reasons but if purchase order is consistent, check the output channel once in "You can also" option in the purchase order.

In this case, you can see that the output channel is set as XML. XML is used when you have communication arrangement set up. However, all other output in the purchase order has been triggered via printer/email. So, XML is not the correct output channel here.


You can change the output channel under "You can also" option and then finish the purchase order.

Kindly check the output channel of the purchase order once if you face similar issues in future.
