    Receiving Open Interface related doubt

      Hi All,

      We are currently on Oracle Release 12.0.4 and need some help/information regards Receiving Open Interface tables : rcv_headers_interface & rcv_transactions_interface tables.

      We import the ASN which is being sent across from the Supplier via EDI directly into the Receiving Open Interface tables and then RTP program ( Receiving Transaction Processor ) program processes these into the base tables
      to complete the receipt process..

      Now for some reason or the other lets say because of EDI data issues or some other system issue with the RTP program , the Interface records end up in error status & the users have to manually complete the Receipt in Oracle Forms directly..

      Now this Interface data over a period in time keeps accumulating while the corresponding PO Document would already have been Received manually in Oracle.

      Because of this errored interface records the Interface tables keep growing in size in terms of data volume..

      Now is there a way script or a program which validates these interface records and purges these automatically based on some validations on its own..

      For Example : for a po if the records are stuck in the interface table but the po shipment has already been received in manually and in Closed Status, then it would automatically purge these records from interface tables.

      Could someone please help us with this as soon as possible with any suggestions or workarounds..

          Currently there is no purge program available to purge the records in RTI. Further the oracle support wont be able to provide a delete script to delete the records in RTI (The reason being, the records are populated by the customer and customers are the best persons to validate the records and delete them on their own).

          However, for ASN's
          You may write a query based on the RTI.po_distribution_id and then check, whether the corresponding po shipment\distribution is already received \ closed for receiving and then you may delete.
