In this topic you will learn how to Print a Requisition.
Requisition must be requested and printed one at a time by each end-user to prevent blocking of the database. The speed with which a requisition will print will vary depending on network traffic, the type of process run, etc.
An end-user must confirm whether he/she has a Requisition Print Process running before initiating a new print request. The Process Monitor can be used to view and monitor a print request. You can access the Process Monitor using one of the following methods:
1. Navigate directly to the Process Monitor from the main menu; or
2. Click the Process Monitor link on the Requisition Print page.
Click the Add a New Value link to add a Run Control ID.
It is recommended that you do not select a single parameters for Statuses to Include. For example, if you have not unchecked the Hold From Further Processing box and select only the Approved option, the requested print will not display in the Report Manager because the requisition has not been approved as yet.
Click the Requisition Print SQR link. This will open a new window.
NOTE: If you receive a pop-up blocker message, right click on the pop-up menu bar and select "Always Allow Pop-ups from this site".
Click the File button to print the requisition or click the printer icon.
Normally you will click the OK button to print the requisition.
For training purposes only, click the Cancel button.
The first time you print a requisition, you must create a Run Control ID. A Run Control ID is:
1. Specific to the end-user's User ID;
2. Must be one continuous string of words;
3. Can connect multiple words using an underscore;
4. Cannot have any blank spaces; and
5. Cannot use any special characters.
When printing future requests, you can select the Run Control ID previously established.
You will select Report Request Parameters and save them to the Requisition Print page. When printing future requisitions, it will only be necessary to change the Requisition ID. All other fields will remain as previously selected.
Default parameters will be selected for the following field only:
1. Business Unit;
2. Requisition ID; and
3. Statuses to Include.
The From Date, Through Date and Requester fields will remain blank.
The Run Status must be Success and the Distribution Status must be Posted to have a completed process. Click the Refresh button every 10 - 15 seconds to update the page and statuses.
The Status must be Posted and the Description must be a blue link. If the Status is not posted click the Refresh button every 10 - 15 seconds to update the page and Status. The Description will not become a blue link until the Status is Posted.
This completes Print a Requisition.
