Symptoms

Cannot Update Complex PO Using 'Change Amount' in Buyer Work Center due to error 'PO_INVALID_ENC_AMT'.

The problem can be reptoduced at will by following these steps :
   1. Create and Approve Complex PO in Buyer Work Center
   2. Attempt to Update above Complex PO by using 'Change Amount'
   3. Error 'PO_INVALID_ENC_AMT'

The issue is similar to <Bug 1781962> (<Note 1605996.1>) but with different cause.

System already had the fix from Bug 1781962 installed ( PO_VALIDATIONS.plb 120.78.12010000.49).

The reason that error 'PO_INVALID_ENC_AMT' appears is because the Complex PO is always approved with PO_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL.amount_ordered equal to NULL, so validation in PROCEDURE "check_encumbered_amount" will be failed and the error 'PO_INVALID_ENC_AMT' thrown.
