Hi,

Kindly share your inputs on below issue.

EBS Ver# 11.5.10.2, DB Ver# 10.2.0.4

1. Create Standard PO
2. Submit for approval.
3. PO approved by Approver
4. Submitter changes the PO by adding new PO Line/ Increase Quantity, to increase PO amount, then save the changes
5. PO status changed to Require Reapproval
6. Submit for approval
7. PO is Auto approved.

Problem is in Step 7, PO should not be Auto Approved, expected to route and wait for defined Approval Autority.

Regards,
Ram

    I think you need to visit workflow to make changes

    Change Orders Process - Allows you to control which changes require a manual reapproval and which will be automatically reapproved. All reapproved documents, either manual or automatic, will result in the document revision being incremented. This process is part of the PO Approval workflow.

    In R12 this has been simplified with tolerance and routings

    Hi,

    It was a bug. Resolved with patch from Oracle Support.



    On 11.5.10 it is observed that although the Change Order Header Purchase Order Total Tolerance (CO_H_PO_TOTAL_T)
    is set to 0 increase in purchase order total do not cause the PO to require reapproval.

    This issue is caused by the fact the wrong attribute is checked to make a decision on Reapproval.

    - The PO Approval workflow procedure PO_CHORD_WF6.get_default_tolerance should get the total change tolerance from CO_H_PO_TOTAL_T as that attribute is designed tolerance so that if the purchase order total is changed less than the tolerance percentage, the document will be automatically reapproved.
    - Currently, this attribute, which is the PO Approval workflow procedure PO_CHORD_WF6.get_default_tolerance, is calling the attribute 'CO_H_PO_TOTAL_CHANGE' instead of the attribute 'CO_H_PO_TOTAL_T'.

    The issue was fixed with Patch 4487674, which will install POXWCO6B.pls 115.14.11510.3 .


    Regards,
