When you click the New Supplement button, a new supplement is created for the selected engineering requisition. This button is only enabled if:
the requisition has already been released to procurement or the requisition is assigned to a balance requisition and has been approved
no higher supplement exists for this requisition
the requisition has not been linked to a purchase requisition (in the case of an inquiry requisition)
the requisition is of the same discipline the user is logged in
A new supplement of the requisition is created containing all the line items, attachments, and attributes of the previous supplement. Even the BOM trace is copied. The status of the new supplement is set to the status defined as the default for the login discipline.
The newly created supplement can be processed like any other requisition not yet approved and released to procurement.
If ident values are attached to any requisition line item, it may happen that one or more of them could not be attached because of a unique key violation (the attribute of the ident value is already used as an 'Attached Attribute' with another 'KIND_OF', that is, 'OTHER'). In this case, the ‘Ident Values not copied’ window opens, listing all these attributes. Click OK to close this window.
