I think this question should be directed to Procurement - EBS (MOSC)
- Define Approval Groups (Purchasing Responsibility -> Setup -> Approvals -> Approval Groups). For each approval group assign at least one Document Total and one Account Range
- Assign Approval Groups to positions (Purchasing Responsibility -> Setup -> Approvals -> Approval Assignments). Assignment is at document level.
Now let me know what you are looking for exactly,

I am looking for the Approval Limit for a Person holding any position.
If a PO Of 1000$ goes to one Approval Group which is having 3 Positions(1,2,3),where i can i see the Approval Limit of Position 1,2 and 3.
In Approval Group screen, 'Amount Limit' for object 'Document Total' is stands for PO Approval Limit.
If you set the Amount Limit = 1000 for Document Total and then assign the same approval group to Position 1,2,3 then 1000 will became the Approval limit for position 1,2,3.
Please consider the previous updates from Mohammad and Sanjay (consider [the Approval Groups --you can assign at least one Document Total and the amount limit] and [Approval Assignments where you can define position, Document type and approval group])..as in the previous search results.
Thanks for the clarification.Could you please go through the below approach and confirm if i am correct.
If i have PO of Amount Limit = 1000 and i want to get it approved by routing it through 3 Positions(Inventory Manager,Account Manager,CFO)
So after creating Job,Position and Position Hierarchy
I need to create 3 Approval Group: (Approval Group Form)
Inventory Manager Group : Document Total = 100
Account Manager Group : Document Total = 500
CFO Group : Document Total = 1000
Then i need to associate the Document Type(Standard Purchase Order) to all the 3 groups under respective positions. (Assignment Approval From)
Position : Inventory Manager
Document Type : Standard Purchase Order Approval Group : Inventory Manager Group
Position : Account Manager
Document Type : Standard Purchase Order Approval Group :Account Manager Group
Position : CFO
Document Type : Standard Purchase Order Approval Group : CFO Group
Thanks in advance.
Yes, you are going in right direction.
As per your setup, the PO approval limit of Inventory Manager, A/c Manager & CFO will be Rs. 100, 500 & 1000 respectively.
But, after creating the Position Hierarchy, you must have to run the 'Fill Employee Hierarchy' Concurrent program to take the position hierarchy in effect.
Thanks a lot Sanjay...It's really helpful.
