          Hi,
          Your question :

          *1) How can we reject some lines of PO which came for approval?*
          Ans : a) Go to notification link after logging into apps... you will see the reject button, reject the PO as per your requirement.
          b) If notification through mail is enable in your system, then you will receive a notification through mail to approve or reject a PO without logging into application.

          *2) How can we ignore a notification.*
          Ans : There will be basically 2 kind of notifications..Like FYI or FYA.. You can not ignore FYA notifications as you have been selected as part of the approval process and your participation is mandatory in the approval process .. You can ignore FYI notifications.

          Hope this helps.

              Hi,
              Your question is : if we have received a PO for approval and that PO contains 10 lines in it , and we just want to cancel 2 lines of it , then how can we do it.

              Ans : PO approval process is not based on PO lines..Approval is based on the whole PO.. An approver can modify the lines (set to zero - for cancel) before approving it, this is possible if in the PO document type setup the Approver can modify option is checked..

              Hope this explanation will help.. :)

                Thanks again dear but in the setup, PO document type Approver can modify option is already enable.

                  Hi,
                  If the "Approver can modify" option is already enable in PO document type, then Approver can cancel/delete the lines which he does not want to approve...You can't reject a PO line in the approval process instead of deleting the line...

                    we have received a PO for approval and that PO contains 10 lines in it , and we just want to cancel 2 lines of it , then how can we do it.

                    First, make sure you have done all the setups SP Dash mentioned.
                    When the po comes for approval, click on open document link in the notification. The PO will open. (You have to make sure that the approver is setup as a buyer and has access to create PO).
                    Now cancel the lines.
                    Click on approve.

                    Hope this helps,
