The price fields on the purchase requisition are non-editable for catalogue items. It is expected that a trade agreement be created.
The price fields are only editable for these conditions:
- Form is opened view AP -> Periodic -> Purchase Requisition -> All purchase requisition, or
- Line type is “Non-catalogue item”, or
- User is task owner. Ie. The task is assigned to the user. In other words he/she maybe the purchaser that gets the price.
- User is approval owner. Ie. The approval is assigned to the user. In other words he/she maybe the manager that approves the final requisition.
For catalogue items on the purchase requisition line can only select between the vendor directly associated with the item and the cheapest vendor as found through the purchase price trade agreements. If another vendor is requested the vendor can be blanked and the user can enter a “Proposed vendor” in the proposed vendor field on the general tab page for the purchase requisition line.
NOTE: Purchase order line prices and discounts are automatically recalculated when the line is of type catalogue item. The purchase order line price and discounts are not automatically recalculated when the line is of type non-catalogue item or when the line has been through an RFQ process. When the purchase order is created, auto miscellaneous charges for header and lines regardless of item type are automatically recalculated.
So, make sure you set up a trade agreement before the order is created. Otherwise, the order may have an unexpected price.
