E9.1 Purchase Orders with multiple companies in detail

Hi All,
I do not have a current JDE environment to prove this, but I was wondering if anyone can tell me, as I remember, that you can create a purchase order and insert detail lines to multiple companies.
Example: PO Header Company 00100
Detail: Line 1, Item number 1001, Branch Plant BP001, Company 00100
Line 2, Item number 1001, Branch Plant BP002, Company 00200
Line 3, Item number 1001, Branch Plant BP003, Company 00300

Basically, Customer needs to centralize POs where one company buys for all companies, and has items shipped to multiple BP, which can be in different companies.
I remember this being a normal thing, but non Oracle vendors are claiming that it's not a normal business process to do so, and that their systems can only create POs where the detail can only have same company....thanks all...

No input on this from anyone?

I do not think this is possible. the ShipTo information comes from PO Header. If it is, I'm very interested in understanding the configuration.
 
Each detail line can have its own ship to. It defaults from the header but it can be overridden. I know it’s possible, I just have no means to prove it, as I have no access…..I’m just trying to prove to a a consultant and client from another ERP that their system is limited in this aspect.
 
Also interesting is that PO print instinctively printed two separate pages with correct ShipTo in the header of PO Doc and only detail lines attributed to this ShipTo.
Yes, and it makes sense, since the PO print can be sent individually to the recipients(branch, warehouse, etc)

I have checked on our environment which is 8.12 and I could not find the company field to override in detail grid.
I see that we can override the Branch/ Plant, Ship To Number.
As I never heard this subject before, I'm too quite curious to know if this can be done.

If you don't have access to your environment, you can check on https://demo.steltix.com/jde/E1Menu.maf
