Hi Mattias,

Could you please briefly explain  the exact steps you followed to observe this error. It would be easy to figure out the issue.

Could you please check if;

  • the purchase order is using a Supplier Agreement to draw the price
  • and if so, is there a valid record in the Supplier Agreement/ Periods tab

You could stop this error from coming by adding the missing record in to Periods tab.

RnD has released a patch few months back that stops users from removing records from ‘Periods’ tab if that is already used, which would stop this error popping up later in procurement process.

This could be due to the missing of the respective periods in periods tab line when purchase order lines exists (except for the cancel state). The user may have deleted the period since the agreement may not be valid for the given period anymore. But still if any POs pending for matching, it should not allow the user to delete the respective periods.

If that’s the scenario here, yes a bug has been created by RnD to prevent deletion of the records in periods tab line when purchase order lines exists.

R&D Info 

R&D has identified this as a bug and after the correction the user will not be able to delete the periods tab line when purchase order lines exists except for the cancel state. Therefore, the error will not occur when matching the PO receipts. 

Moreover, regarding the previously used closed purchase orders that associates with an active supplier agreement, we may not be able to give a data repair script for the previously records since we do not know the valid to and valid from dates in the period tab. 

Workaround - No

 

Check if this is your scenario.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hi @MattiasLindahl ,

I believe this issue has been reported to IFS by you and I had the chance to investigate it. The above bug , 158299  does not resolve your issue as the issue is related to a customization. 

The root cause is passing operation finished date of shop order for fetching price information for the Purchase Order Line. In core, site date is used for this. 

Due to this, a wrong Supplier Agreement No is passed to the PO line, thus, the mentioned error occurs in Self-Billing Invoice Analysis window.

We will communicate more information through the case.
