4. On the PO, the 2 required DFFs (XXX and YYY are blank)

XXX - You must make at least one selection.
YYY - You must make at least one selection
**the above is good, as it shows that information is required

7. Line 1, Field: Reference ZZZ - Error: A value is required. You must enter a value. > Enter a value > go back to lines tab (This does not happen for line 2.)

9. PO validation: Confirmation: No errors or warnings were found.
