Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login with user ABC
  2. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  3. Go to Invoice Scanning view
  4. Click on Upload button
  5. Enter company XYZ and upload the pdf document
  6. System creates invoice for company MNC 


When the user ABC uploads the pdf file, in the scanned values system takes incorrect buying company MNC and hence the incorrect numbering format.


When you provide company as XYZ during scanning, it is changing to MNC while creating invoice, not only this company XYZ, if you replace any company it will overwrite with MNC. Because there is org setup for that employee XYZ where company and bill-to will automatically define while creating invoice. Even if you try to create a new invoice without reference to purchase order or with reference to purchase ordere in the supplier invoice work center, Company and Bill-To will be defaulted to company MNC only. System is working as expected.
