When I need to create new purchase requisition and add Item (Add Line) , this warning is appeared (Category field must be filled) . my question is : Is it mandatory to fill Procurement Category?? while it is not mandatory to make purchase order of the item. and it was not mandatory before installing the last hotfix.
It depends on the the Requisition purpose, if it is consumption, the procurement category is mandatory. ( the item Id look up will show only the products that are attached to a procurement category). you need to either choose an item (which will automatically fills the category) or choose category only
in the procurment module got to setup and in that go to polices. where you make the policies for the purchase requisiton , how to create, how not to create,which to include and which not to include. there u have a option that procurement category can be made mandatory or not a madatory.
