Re-approving PO Should Not Require Not Before Date To Be Changed (Doc ID 2681661.1)

Last updated on JUNE 19, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If a previously approved PO needs to be updated after it has passed the Not Before Date, system requires the user to update the Not Before Date to be vdate or greater. This is inconsistent behavior as compared to previous versions of RMS where this check is not present.

Steps To Reproduce:

  1. Create a new PO and approve it.
  2. Advance Vdate by few days, and then bring the PO to worksheet status to make a change (example: add a new item).
  3. Try to re-approve the PO. Note the error message "Not Before Date must not be earlier than today".
