Document Styles
Implementation Considerations
• Document Styles is a new concept in Release 12. It is a configuration tool that reduces the complexity of the application by allowing procurement managers to control the available functionality and the display of PO documents.  • A document style is mandatory on a PO document. The style setting controls the document display on the HTML UI for document creation, update, and viewing of individual document, as well as the allowable values during the document creation and update. • A style can only be applied at the start of document creation. It cannot be replaced with another style or removed from a document. • Standard Style: This will be the only seeded style and will be used for upgrade of the documents created
prior to R12.

• Non-standard style:

• Any new styles created in R12 are considered non-standard. • Purchasing documents with these styles can only be created and processed through the Work Center.
