Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:POXPOEPO.FMB - Enter Purchase Orders GUI


Symptoms

When in Approve form, check the Unreserve box and Unreserve date defaults to system date. Then click OK, the Unreserve action will be attempted by the system. As the Purchase Order (PO) is overbilled, this action will fail. The screen comes back with the message saying that "Unreserve Date Must be  entered". After clicking OK, the following message is displayed - "Your Budgetary Control Action completed with Exceptions". Now click OK again, and get the message "Field Unreserve Date must be entered". The cursor Now returns to the Approve window.

Steps To Reproduce:
1) Using an overbilled Purchase Order, click on Approve button to get to Approval screen
2) Click Unreserve flag, and also Use Document GL Date to Unreserve
3) Unreserve Date shows as Required and is filled in with valid date
4) Click OK and start getting error messages and cannot finish Approving
