Important Point for ASBN.

1.Supplier site Cannot be flagged off as Pay on Receipt.

Reason : ASBN will populate the invoice information in Open interface and a AP Invoice (PO Matching) will be Created once the Receiving Transaction Processor and Payables open Interface is Run. if a Supplier site is Flagged as Pay on Receipt, Again the system Would Try to Create a New Invoice upon Creating the Receipt. Hence to Prevent Duplication, ASBN Allows Only PO With Supplier Site without Pay on Receipt Enabled.
