Supplier Creation in Oracle Payables
  1. Overview of Suppliers :

We setup suppliers in the Suppliers page to record information about companies and individuals from whom we purchase goods and services. When we enter a supplier that does business from multiple locations, we enter common supplier information only once, and we enter supplier sites for each location.
Most of the supplier information defaults to supplier sites. However, we can override the values that default if necessary.
