plan2.jpgJD Edwards World Premier Support for A9.3 and A9.3.1 will end on March 31, 2020. While customers can remain on JD Edwards World A9.3/A93.1 and continue to acquire Sustaining Support for access to our Global Services team, as well as access to existing fixes for known A9.3/A9.3.1 issues, we highly recommend upgrading to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.2 is part of the Applications Unlimited commitment to continuous innovation. Oracle JD Edwards provides a commitment to offer Oracle Premier Support through at least 2030. You may also choose to upgrade to A9.4 which provides Premier Support and updates until 2022 and Extended Support through 2025. This new KM document provides details and options for customers remaining on release A9.3/A9.3.1. Doc ID 2628927.1.

Information for the import/export functionality is stored in the following User Defined Code (UDC) tables:


  • 00/BE - Batch Export Enabled Program
  • 00/BI - Batch Import Enabled Program
  • 00/IE - Interactive Export Enabled Program
  • 00/II - Interactive Import Enabled Program


For information related to implementing Import/Export in JD Edwards World programs in the JD Edwards World Technical Tools Guide Release A9.4.

All companies that uses JD Edwards software also purchase goods from various suppliers. These could be office supplies used for daily operations or could be raw materials used in a manufacturing process along with a long list of other possibilities.  You may also purchase the same material / item from more than one supplier.


But what happens when a supplier you have used in the past is no longer an option for these purchases?  There could be many reasons for this change, such as that supplier no longer carries the item or can no longer deliver the items in a timely fashion and you need to use a more reliable source.


Regardless of the reason, you need a way to block entry of new purchase orders for this specific supplier and since you use the JD Edwards World Procurement system for making these purchases you ask:


"What are your options for preventing creation of purchase orders from a specific supplier in JD Edwards World?"


The answer is dependent on your JD Edwards World release level as functionality related to this has changed.


The answers can be found in the following documents:


  • FAQ General Procurement (Doc ID 1534609.1) Question/Answer #2 provides the available options and workarounds based on your release level.
  • How to Prevent Creation of an Order for a Specific Customer or Supplier (Doc ID 1177503.1) provides similar information but also discusses prevention of sales orders again based on your release level.
  • How To Prevent Purchase Orders To Unauthorized Vendors? (Doc ID 1303709.1) provides additional detail specific to the functionality added in Release A9.1.


As you will see by reviewing these documents, prior to A9.1 the process was more of a workaround whereas in A9.1 and newer releases, you can actually 'deactivate' a supplier by setting the Hold Purchase Order flag in Address Book.

From the JD Edwards World design perspective, whatever you call it on the shop floor, is not necessarily the way it has been named in the software. When reporting a symptom in your Service Request, the product you choose will always be Shop Floor Management, but the program name will depend on the release that you are using. You will see that, for example in A7.3, it is called Rate Base Manufacturing but with release A8.1 and above, it is called Repetitive Manufacturing. The menus across releases are the same, i.e. G3115, G3116, G3141, but the options for the programs are not always named alike. These differences are due to changes in the A8.1 release, when changes were made in the manufacturing accounting program along with some enhancements , added program, and removed programs .


Here's a review of differences in menus, per release:


G3115 Menu

Menu name: A7.3 - Rate Based Scheduling

  • Rate Based Schedule
  • Enter Change Rate Schedule (P3104). This program populates file F3104, which is used to store rate schedules. As of 8.1, this file has been removed as part of the consolidation of work orders and repetitive functionality.
  • Schedule Review (P31224)
  • Rate Schedule Workbench (P3114)
  • Production History (P31223)


Menu name : A8.1 – A9.2 onward - Daily Processing-Repetitive

Rate Processing

  • Enter / Change Rate Schedule (P3109)
  • Completions Workbench (P3119) (invokes many programs including P31422)


Line Scheduling (3 new major functions to Rate Schedule added)

  • Line Scheduling Workbench (P3153)
  • Line Schedule Review (P3152)
  • Line Sequencing Workbench (P3156)


  • Production Status (P31226)
  • Production History (P31227)
  • Line Dispatch List (P3159)
  • Work Center Schedule Review (P31224)


Kanban Processing

  • Kanban Consumption (P3157 )
  • Kanban Supply (P3158)


G3116 Menu

Menu Name : A7.3 - Daily Manufacturing Accounting

  • Rate Based Journal Entries (P31842)


Menu Name : A8.1-A9.2 onward – Daily Manufacturing Accounting

  • Rate Schedule Journal Entries (P31802)

Will see you there!!!

You may run into this periodically when running the P470412 and wonder why are you getting error 2475 - PO Line already Matched when the line you are attempting to voucher has not been matched?  You can inquire on the order/receipt in P4314 (with Match Type = 1) and it pulls in the sub-file data verifying the detail lines are available for / ready for voucher creation.  So why do you get this error?


There are a few reasons why you may be getting this error.  One of the most common and most missed reasons for this error is you are attempting to create a voucher for a partial receipt and the F47042 field 'No of Lines' (SZNLIN) does not have the correct value.


Details on this answer along with the other possible causes are detailed in WS: 47: Troubleshooting Inbound EDI Transaction Sets (Doc ID 1559493.1).


If you would like even more information on this and other errors as well as general information on the P470412, use the link below to view the recent Advisor Webcast on World program P470412.

Beginning with A93.1 and above (A94 and A94.1) when performing a Work Order Material Issue using Inventory Issues (P31113) and changing the Lot and/or Location for an item in the fold of the Issues (V31113) screen, the change is no longer saved. This is reported in BUG 29154442 - INVENTORY ISSUES (P31113) DOES NOT SAVE MANUAL CHANGE TO LOT/LOCATION.


Potential work around would involve using option 4 from the Issues screen to call the Multi-location window (P42053) to transact an Issue.


For additional information see Inventory Issues (P31113) Not Saving Manual Change to Location or Lot (Doc ID 2489511.1).

What makes these two versions different is the purpose of its running within the business established process in manufacturing accounting. For example, if you are processing  work orders  before reaching the status of full completion or your work order, this action is commonly called ‘Work In Process’ or WIP, denoting that the order it is not yet fully completed on the shop floor but that journal entries are been generated progressively before reaching the completed status.


Then, when the work order reaches the final status reflecting that all inventory and routing activity has been fully completed, therefore, ready to run P31802  in final mode for the last time (right before generating variances) this step is known as P31802 Completions or manufacturing accounting completion.

This is a user defined process, as it is not mandatory to run one version or the other or both. The definition of the business process can accommodate both runs, or only one.  One of the most important keys for WIP and Completions versions is the work order status defined by user and that will be data selected and/or updated for the work orders that are been processed.  User can define if there will be or not a status for WIP and a different status for final completion in UDC 00/SS, or use the same for both.  The other key is the Variance Flag (PPFG) that resides in the Work Order Header.


For more details on P31802 program setup and information on (PPFG), review Knowledge Document Creating Manufacturing (WIP) Journal Entries (Document ID 1579651.1) and Purpose of the Variance Flag (PPFG) In Manufacturing (Document ID 661187.1).
