Goal

Set the 'RECV_TOLERANCE_UNIT' System Control Parameter (SCP) value to 'E'.

When trying to receive the same Purchase Order (PO) for the second time, the system throws an error message "Unit Qty Appointed EXCEEDS Unit Qty Ordered for this Item" while creating a 2nd appointment (same PO, different Advanced Shipment Notice (ASN)).  But upon confirming the message, the system still adds the PO to the appointment, and then the appointment can be received successfully.

For example:
1.  PO has 20 units requested. 
2.  Create an ASN and an appointment for the PO and receive complete 20 units.
3.  Next create another ASN for the same PO and a new appointment.
4.  The appointment can also be received for the 20 units.

The system should not let the user create second appointment.  Please clarify the observed behavior.
