Reproducing the Issue

  • Create Purchase order
  • Click on view all
  • Go to item
  • Go to items table  end where you can see two extension fields (create two extension fields via adaptation mode)
  • Ensure both fields are empty.(remove the values if exist)
  • Click on check and order
  • Again open the order and enter values under both fields any number or words
  • Click on send update


  • Go to supplier invoicing work center
  • Go to invoice entry
  • Search  for the Purchase order you created
  • Click on  new invoice
  • Go to  view all
  • Go to items tab
  • You will see that extension fields values are empty


first Purchase order -both fields are updated with value after ordering the Purchase order, then its not working fine, however
second Purchase order-one field updated before ordering and other field after ordering, then its working fine. this very strange . which is wrong


If Purchase Order is created without values in KUT extension fields, later if you add value and click on send update, however value will not flow from Purchase Order to Supplier invoice due to technical limitation.


Developers looked into setting a Default value on the extension field when the Purchase Order is created but this wouldn't allow users to edit the field going forward. again due to technical limitation thus they gave  below solution


so we request you to update some default value while creating Purchase Order in the extension field, Later you can change the value and click on send update . where the value is flowing from Purchase Order to Supplier invoice as expected.


value not appearing in Supplier invoice; KUT field value is empty in Supplier invoice , KBA , SRD-SRM-PRO , Purchase Requests and Orders , Problem
