When user changes Currency Mode (CRRM)in the purchase order from F to D and inquires on a purchase order to place a hold code on the header, Held Orders (F4209) is improperly updated with ** instead of the actual hold code.


  1. Create purchase order with a foreign supplier.
  2. Inquire on PO in Open Orders (P430301) and place a 2 in the option field for PO Entry.
  3. From Purchase Order Detail (P43111) the order will be displayed in foreign mode (F). Change mode to D and inquire.
  4. Use Function 15 (F15) For PO header.
  5. Note the header is in change mode. Manually update Hold Code and press enter to make the change.
  6. The system highlights mode and generates error:
    1456 - Not in Original Mode of Entry WARNING.
    Cause . . . . You are attempting to change or delete a transaction in a different mode of entry than the original mode of entry for the transaction.

    Resolution . . Reinquire upon the transaction in the original mode of entry and execute the change or delete. Or, press ENTER and your transaction will be accepted. The original mode of entry will be changed to the current mode of entry. If the transaction is changed in the new mode the amount values will be recalculated, which could result in the original amount values being changed.

  7. Enter through the error because it is a WARNING and enter again when in the detail.
  8. Review the F4209 and note HOHCOD (Hold Code) has been populated with **, not the actual hold code. The PO header did retain the hold code.
  9. The held order will not display in Release Held Orders (P42070).
