PeopleSoft Services Procurement
The PeopleSoft Enterprise eSupplier Connection PeopleBook provides you with implementation and processing information for your PeopleSoft eSupplier Connection system. However, additional, essential information describing the setup and design of your system resides in companion documentation. The companion documentation consists of important topics that apply to many or all PeopleSoft applications across the Financials, Enterprise Service Automation, and Supply Chain Management product lines. You should be familiar with the contents of these PeopleBooks.
These companion PeopleBooks contain information that applies specifically to PeopleSoft eSupplier Connection.
PeopleSoft Enterprise Application Fundamentals 9.1 PeopleBook
PeopleSoft Enterprise Services Procurement 9.1 PeopleBook

PeopleSoft Enterprise Purchasing 9.1 PeopleBook
Several pages in PeopleSoft eSupplier Connection operate in deferred processing mode. Most fields on these pages are not updated or validated until you save the page or refresh it by clicking a button, link, or tab. This delayed processing has various implications for the field values on the page. For example, if a field contains a default value, any value you enter before the system updates the page overrides the default. Another implication is that the system updates quantity balances or totals only when you save or otherwise refresh the page.
