Symptoms

During workflow approval process for Expense Report Approval (APEXP), some expense reports with negative amounts that are missing receipts are not selected for audit even though the audit rule is defined to "Audit all expense reports with requires receipts.".

Steps to recreate:
----------------------
1) Define Audit rule for “Audit all expense reports with required receipts” and activate.
2) Enter an expense report with a report total that is less than 0 because of credit card refund transactions. Expense report has other lines with receipt required flag checked.
3) As per this rule expense report should be audited if at least one expense line that requires a receipt. But when the expense report is entered, it is getting auto approved and auto audited.

Expected Results:
----------------------
Expense report should get audited when at least one expense line on expense report requires a receipt, regardless of expense report amount.
