I would greatly appreciate your inputs/suggestions on how to solve this request from my client.


On an import PO, we have expense profiles set-up based on Shipping Routes/Lading & Discharge Ports.


The expenses of course default to all Items on the Purchase Order.

Frequently, expedited shipping is required; my client prefers to add this expense @ PO level (i.e. $1000 flat) rather than charging expedited freight against each Item on the order.

With this said, any suggestions as to how I would set-up the cost component?

Do I first create a CVB for say, 'Total Expense - ExFreight'

Then create a new Cost Component of Total Expense by Country, using the above CVB, with a specific calculation basis.

Order Cost Basis = Order

Component Rate = $1000?


Would the above approach work or can someone recommend a better approach to solve this request?


Your input would be greatly appreciated!





Hi All,


As in Brand Compliance we can retrieve a single Product record’s details using the internal unique ID using the RESTful API. However, the internal unique product id is not visible in the UI.


Could anyone please help me out how can we retrieve the internal unique product id for product or where can I view the unique id?


Thanks and Regards,


Hi ,


I am not able to find any information on the Bug reference quoted by Oracle Bug_ID 29007356 . This is reported on the ORBC platform 17.0.11 where the reports are not being executed. Have any one has seen this Bug?

Post-Session OIC2018_ORUG 20180418 v1.png

Post-Session Sep_19-20_ORUG@ORIF 20170920 v1.png

Version- RMS V13.2.6

Using Retail method of accounting


After the stock counts from previous fiscal month are posted after month close we are seeing some large numbers in month data for stock take bookstock retail.


These calculations from my understanding comes from daily data aggregation based on the date parameter.


For example - a subclass-location level , there was never opening stock more than $500 in retail. Somehow after the stock daily batch ran and bookstock retail was overstated by alot ($6700).. this location/subclass never had much activity to account for that bigger stock take bookstock retail.


I was wondering if there's a patch/bug fix for this problem.
