Purchase Requisition Gets Error ORA-01403 and ORA-01422 at POR_AME_REQ_WF_PVT.UPDATE_ACTION_HISTORY_APPROVE (Doc ID 1597655.1)

Last updated on MAY 01, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle iProcurement - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to approve the requisition , the following error occurs.

-- Error
Error: ORA-01403: no data found
ORA-01422: exact fetch returns more than requested number of rows

-- What is working
Issue is seen only when delegated to an approver who is already in the approval list.

 -- Steps
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps.
Consider an example where the Requisition preparer is PREP, and three approvers APPRV-1, APPRV-2, and APPRV-3 have to approve this Requisition. (APPRV-1) is out of office and sets up a vacation rule to DELEGATE all notifications to (APPRV-3).

1. PREP submits the requisition for approval.
2. Approval Notification is routed to APPRV-1 and then DELEGATED to APPRV-3 (re-routed to APPRV-3.)
3. APPRV-3 approves (on behalf of APPRV-1.)
4. Notification is routed to next approver APPRV-2.
5. APPRV-2 approves.
6. Notification is routed to next approver APPRV-3.
7. APPRV-3 approves. This is when the error occurs, because APPRV-3 exists more than once in the action history, once as a delegated approver and second as APPRV-3 itself.
