    Recently, our supplier changed their company name. There is an open Purchase Order addressed to them using their old name and we need to update the Supplier field to that of the new one, somehow.

    How can it be done?

    Please help.

    Since the company name has changed for the supplier, you need to update the supplier name in supplier definition.
    In Purchasing: Supply Base >> Suppliers
    In Payables: Suppliers >> Entry
    When you do this all existing Purchasing Documents, Invoices etc for this supplier will show the updated name irrespective of the document status (as in the backend the reference is maintained using system generated ID, vendor_id).
    Remember, if you have upstream/ downstream systems or interfaces that are using supplier information to/ from Oracle and using supplier name as the only reference (not supplier number or ID etc) then you need to take care of that as well.
