PO is created via the PO Create Document workflow from a PO Contract Header.   When the approval workflow is launched (POAPPRV), it ends up failing correctness check and going back to Incomplete status, never getting approved and never sent to the supplier.

Workflow Administrator, notification shows that the buyer is invalid, however, the buyer is in fact valid.
The notification text looks like this:
Standard Purchase Order XXXXX failed Correctness Check.

The Wfstat shows:
Buyer is inactive. Please update the document with a valid buyer.
