Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders work center
  2. Go to the Purchase Orders view
  3. Select the relevant Purchase Order
  4. Select Edit
  5. You can see the payment terms updated as B instead of A



In the supplier master data, you have changed the payment terms from B to A on date DD.MM.YYYY. At the time of Purchase Order creation, the payment terms was B and hence system populates or proposes the payment terms as B instead of A. 


There is a frequent change in the payment terms after the documents were Created/Ordered/Posted. Hence system uses the old payment terms that exists during the creation process. System is working as designed. If you want the updated payment terms to be reflected in the purchase order, please update it manually before you order.
