Symptoms

In Retail Merchandising System (RMS) 13.1.7, a second obligation cannot be approved for multiple purchase orders (PO's) at Transportation/Voyage/Fleet level.


Steps to Recreate:

  1. Create 3 import PO's, each for a different location and same vendor.  Each PO has the same two items: Item 1 and Item 2.
  2. Validate that all PO's have the same cost component. This cost component will be used later for creating obligation.
  3. Ship the PO's (through Vendor or by RMS).
  4. Create 3 transportation records for Item 1 with the same the same Voyage ID, Vessel ID and estimated departure date.
  5. Create 3 transportation records for Item 2 with the same the same Voyage ID, Vessel ID and estimated departure date. (Notice that the Voyage ID and vessel ID for Item 2 are different than Item 1)
  6. Receive all 3 PO's.
  7. Create an obligation #1 at Voyage/vessel/ETD level only for item 1.  Approve the obligation.
  8. Create obligation #2 at Voyage/vessel/ETD level only for item 1.  Approve the obligation.
  9. The status changes to approved. However, when you click OK, the following error occurs:  "The obligation cannot be allocated for orders which have not been received. Previously created invoices will be deleted"
