Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Scanning view.
  3. Select Scan ID ABC (ABC represents the Scan ID document).
  4. Click on Create Invoice button.
  5. Click on Check button.

The Product Category was not determined.


It is a system behavior.

It is not possible to determine the Product Category when using a free text item for Scanned Supplier Invoices.


When using the Scanned Invoice document, system will only recognize the Product Category if there is a Product ID maintained, if it is a case of free text, then system will not maintain the Product Category because it won't be able to recognize it.

As a workaround, you can enter it manually or through a PDI.
