We have setup the CREATEPO workflow to enable automatic approval, but in spite of that it goes to the approval hierarchy of the buyer on the Purchase Order. 

We have a requirement that when PO's are created they should be auto approved once the Requisition is approved - we do not need another round of PO approvals.  

Automatic approval allowed is set to "Y" in the CREATEPO attribute.

Why is this not working for us?
