i have created a contract in r12 instance,i ahve submitted the contract for approval,after approval process ,contract status is not changing to ACTIVE.
Status is showing as Entered,and Negotiated status is showing as Pending for internal approval
Check whether there are any holds on sales order.. and also perform QA check before approving the contract..
Once you approve the contract, a notification will be sent to List contract Administrator(Go to CRM Admin Responsibility u will find this group there). One of the person in that group should approve the contract and sign it after that only the contract status will change to ACTIVE.
