Address and Site Creation - Unable to create address and sites because of the following error when trying to create the site in operating unit [Vision Operations]: [ORA-01403: no data found in Package AP_VENDOR_PUB_PKG Procedure Validate_Vendor_Site]. Either resolve this issue and try again or deselect the operating unit with the error and continue. Note: any new address requires at least one site in order to be created.

Cause: Addressee

Dealing with "Addressee"

Addressee field is potentially used to assist with the interface with iStore.A ddressee is used when an order is made by a customer and is shipped somewhere else. It is just like you purchase a book and have it shipped to your friend . Your friend becomes the addressee at the address that the book is sent to. Therefore you can use ADDRESSEE column to store an alternative displayed name which can be used in place of the party name on mailing labels or other external documents.

The usage of this column may vary in different applications within Oracle EBS.

Oacle Shipping

Oracle Shipping will display the column on mailing label for ship to customer when the customer account owning party is a party of party type PERSON.

Oracle OM

Order Management may display the column in a sales order along with the customer name (from party name), ship to org name (from customer site use simplifying the process of creating the on-time ship to address.

Oracle CRM Product

CRM iStore will use the column to display the person name in a personal address book since CRM consider that it is a huge overhead to create a party record for each person in a personal address book.

Technical Reference

TCA table HZ_PARTY_SITES parking the column data in ADDRESSEE field.


Remove Addressee / Enter Valid one.
