          Hi,

           

          Include your shipping instructions in a file and attach the file to the PO and choose "To Supplier" in the category field.

           

          Hope this helps,

              Based on Oracle Purchasing User guide doc., the defualting ship-to rules at header level in order as

              1) Financial options

              2) supplier

              3) supplier site

               

              Here, Supplier overrides the Financials options.

              Supplier Site overrides the Supplier.

                Hi There,

                 

                Our buyers want the shipping instructions to be populated automatically when the item in ordered as the item ordered is very expensive and need to be shipped in upright position.

                 

                We should be able to provide this special shipping instructions to the supplier. Is there any other place we can specify the info ?

                 

                Is there any set up at the item level we can use ?

                 

                Thanks,

                Mamatha

                  Hi Mamatha,

                   

                  The other option is to enter the shipping instructions by utilizing "Note to Supplier" field under purchase order > "More" tab or "Supplier Note" field under Purchase Order > "Terms and conditions".

                   

                  System will print those instructions on the PO once printed and hence, you will embed the shipping instructions notes in the PO.

                   

                  unfortunately, it is not possible to send the note based on the item as there is no standard functionality to support this

                   

                  Hope this helps,

                    Hi,

                     

                    Yeah I was also thinking the same. Might be a back end trigger to update that data when ever a PO is created for the item would help.

                     

                    Thanks a lot for the prompt replies.

                     

                    Thanks,
