3475179 - Supplier ID and Supplier Name Fields not populating in the Process Purchase Proposals view

Symptom

When you navigate to the Process Purchase Proposals View within the Supply Control Workcenter you notice that the Supplier ID and Supplier Name Fields are empty for many of the Rows.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supply Control Work Center.
  2. Go to Process Purchase Proposals View.
  3. Filter by All Proposals by Selection.
  4. You will notice that there are many examples of Purchase Proposals that do not show any information for Supplier ID and Supplier Name.

Cause

The affected Proposals do not have a valid Source available.

When you open a Proposal that includes both the Supplier ID and Supplier Name, you will find the Source of Supply and the List Price maintained.

Conversely, if you open a Proposal that does not include the Supplier ID and Supplier Name, you will notice that there is no maintained Source of Supply.

Resolution

In order to resolve the issue you need to ensure you have a valid Source of Supply at the Requirement Date and the System will pick the Source and maintain the Supplier ID and Supplier Name.
