Oracle Applications: Purchasing: Vendor Hold Report

What does vendor on hold report do ?

Answer:
Vendor on hold report prints all vendors who are on hold and have unapproved po's with authorization status = incomplete for that vendor. This helps the user to change the status on the purchase order and approve it.
This is the intended functionality of the report.
The vendors report would print all vendors and would also include the on hold information.

Under what Circumstance we'll use Blanket and Planned Agreement
In blanket, the price of the agreement is fixed but the quantity is not fixed. We get price breaks in Blanket for volume discounts.
In planned, the shipment is tentative. It does not have any price breaks so no volume discounts.

So, blanket is for high volume transactions.

(<= sign is used because of tolerances)
3-way matching verifies that the receipt and invoice information match with the quantity tolerances defined:
Quantity billed <= Quantity received
4-way matching verifies that acceptance documents and invoice information match within the quantity tolerances defined:
Quantity billed <= Quantity accepted.
(Acceptance is done at the time of Inspecting goods).
