The purpose of this document is to explain the Purchase Order (PO) Name bevahior when the is created from Sourcing Cockpit (SOCO).
When a PO is created from SOCO, the PO Name will be: Local PO + USERNAME + DATE. The USERNAME is the logged on Purchaser.
Why is the SC Name ignored in this case? See the explanation below.
SOCO allows the user to create documents, in this case POs, from one or more Shopping Carts (SC). Since the SCs will have different names, the system assumes the logic mentioned above to determine the PO Name.
