    Reserve and Unreserve funds on REQ and PO

    713478
      Hello All,

      We have started implementing Encumbrance, in this aspect we did setups accordingly in GL and PO. But our main concern is Reserving and Unreserving funds against REQ's and PO's.

      We have created a Standard PO and while Approving we are not checking 'Reserve' check box and approving the PO. But 'Funds Available' form shows that funds are Reserved. How can this be possible? We havent checked Reserve and just approved the PO.

      Next is, How can we Unreserve a PO? When we are using 'Unreserve' check box in Approve Document form the status of PO is chaging to Requries Reapproval. When approving the doc, it is going into 'Approved, Reserved' status.

      And also can anyone help me on Resevie and Unreserve scenarios for REQ's?

      Thanks in Advance

          Which release are you in ?

          Please check "PO: Override Funds Reservation" profile and Budgetary Control Groups setups.
          If you are using versions prior to 11.5.10 then, the Use GL Override check box will not be present in the document approval form. In pre 11.5.10 releases the profile setting is used to determine whether override was considered in a case where the Reserve check box was not explicitly checked.

          Please check the following Metalink notes:

          *11.5.10*
