    We are implementing punchout and we are having an issue; we have different purchase from locations.  I was told to set up the ED45 with the purchase from blank and add the purchase from on RQC on the detail profile (header).  When I look at the RQ10 the lines don't have the purchase from location, after I run the PO100 and I look at PO20 the purchase from is blank. (unless I add the purchase from location on the ED45)

    Does anyone have different purchase from locations?  

    I was told I can't have different ED45's for the different locations, we are trying to get this automated so that the buyers don't need to touch every PO to add the purchase from.  

    Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    I wonder if you could set up a separate ED41 and ED45 record for each location and then have a different Icon for each. You would also have to have a separate entry in the rqc_config.xml file for each one. I haven't had to do this, but it makes sense that it would work. The vendor and the URL would be the same, just the Purchase From would be different.

    I have purch from populated for Grainger on ED45. I call shenanigans at being told you can't do that.

    1) Why have the field if you can't populate?
    2) You are mapping the URL on ED41 and then creating the icons and requesters on ED43. You most definitely CAN have multiple templates and urls per punchout vendor - I've got 6 for Grainger. You then map to what you need on ED45 per user. I'm guessing you'll know which user goes which Purch From?
    3) Mapping multiple purch froms to a single template is what I think will give it hiccups.

    Bottom line: if you also create different templates and work with the vendor with what passes through - go to town.

    We have multiple purchase froms and utilize punchout with blank purchase froms on ED45. Our requesters are responsible for selecting the purchase from when they create their order because they are not tied to one. Having an ED45 tied to each of our purchase froms would be a nightmare for us as each one of our COIDs is a purchase from. We have to do that for Emprint (but still utilize a blank purchase from) because they have a separate item grouping for each COID. We utilize punchout with Staples, Henry Schein, Emprint, and Grainger.

    Thank you so much for the input. I was able to create different ED45's for different locations. I have know another issue. The ED43 is created by requester, how do you set up if that same requester orders items to be delivered to a different locations (different hospitals). For example, we have some items like bone and tissue, frozen items that we send directly to the different hospitals. How can I set up one requester to different from locations in Punchout?

    I would give the requester BOTH templates (create 2 ED43 records) and create unique logos/icons for the user to be able to discern the difference. It would put the responsibility on the user to match the icon to the req loc they were using - but it's the only way I can think of to let them use multiples.

    Wade, How do you have the RQ01 from location set up?  do you leave it blank too?

    Jim,

    That is a very good suggestion but the way we have the requesters set up I can't think of a way of a solution for this.  We have the requesters set up on RQ04 under a department name, the RQ01 purchase from are all set up for the warehouse location - Every requester have multiples departments under that requester name on RQ04 and they all get shipped to the same warehouse location.  We have created RQ01's for those special orders that will need to shipped directly to the  hospitals, so the department knows which location to pick when using RQC if they need the product to be deliver directly to the hospital. With punchout our work around of selecting the those special locations will not work since the ED45 is set up for the warehouse and creating another ED45 will not work because the requester name will be the same on ED43.  If we leave ED45 purchase from location blank when I run the PO100, PO20 purchase from will stay blank and the EDI will not pick the PO.
