Reproducing the Issue

  • Create Purchase order
  • Click 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 that both fields are empty.(remove the values if exist)
  • Click Check and Order
  • Again open the order and enter values under both fields any number or words
  • Click Send Update


  • Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  • Go to Invoice Entry
  • Search for the Purchase order you created
  • Click New Invoice
  • Go to View All
  • Go to Items tab
  • You will see that extension fields values are empty



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


We request you to update some default value while creating Purchase Order in the extension field.

Later you can change the value and click Send Update: the value will be flowing from Purchase Order to Supplier invoice as expected.
