Symptoms

Using Buyer Work Center (BWC):
If the upload uses the action type ADD it works and errors are reported to user (the "view upload errors" works) but if the action type
SYNC is used some errors are not reported. for example a text file is uploaded with a wrong "Supplier Item" attribute (Attribute value exceeds 25 bytes):
the program ends without uploading the wrong lines but the system doesn't report the error, the "view upload errors" function is not available.
In the po_interface_errors table the error records exist with ICX_CAT_ATTR_VALUE_TOO_LONG error message but you can't get this error and the lines gets lost without evidence.

Steps To Reproduce:
1) Login EBS
2) access BWC->Agreements
3) Query up a Blanket PO
4) Action->update
5) Lines->add lines->Via upload
6) select a file to be uploaded - The file contains one line with the supplier item attribute too long and the action type SYNC
7) submit - the request ends without errors
8) Query up the BPA - line. No lines were uploaded as expected.
9) In the po_interface_errors table exist a row with ICX_CAT_ATTR_VALUE_TOO_LONG error message

10) If the same steps are repeated, but with action type ADD the bulk upload concurrent program ends with a warning and an error is reported to the user
