Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOUR
-----------------------
Upon revising a Purchase Order (PO) by adding tax and/or increasing the tax amount, the status of the document changes to 'Requires Reapproval'.  However, upon submitting the document again for approval the document is automatically approved, even though the preparer does not have authority.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The Change Order Tolerance percentage workflow attributes have all been set to zero.  Therefore, the expected behaviour is that when the document amount is increased, the document would be routed again through the hierarchy and forwarded to the approver who has enough authority to approve the increased amount.

SYMPTOMS:
-------------
'Owner Can Approve' flag is set to 'Yes'.
