Symptoms

On : 9.1 version, Procurement
PO Entry (P4310)

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
When the PO Amount is reduced on a line in a different period than the original commitment, and the original G/L date is left on the line and not updated to the date the change was made, the new Extended Amount is getting added as a new Commitment when it should only be the difference between the original amount and new amount that is added as a new commitment.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
When the PO Amount is reduced on a line, the difference between the original extended amount and the new extended amount should be subtracted from the commitment.

The issue occurred on purchase order 660259 PO line number 1 with the following steps:

  1. Purchase Order purchase order 660259 was for 1,500,000 with an Order Date and G/L Date in a previous period (March) of the same fiscal year (2016).
  2. In September 2016, the user reduces the PO Line to 1,450,000, but leaves the G/L date in March 2016.
  3. Refresh Commitment Inquiry (P40230A). There was a record added for the full Amount Committed of 1,450,000. The program should have created a commitment for the difference of -50,000 and not for the full amount.
