When a document contains several distribution lines with different charge accounts


None of the approvers have the rights to approve on all charge accounts

Can the document be approved partially (and then sequentially) by each approver?

1.  Buyer Materials : Approver until $50,000.00 on all Charge Accounts

2.  Charge Account 1120 : Unlimited approval on Charge Account 1120

3.  Charge Account 1130 : Unlimited approval on Charge Account 1130

B.  Three Assignments are defined:

1.  BUYER501.Buyer1 (employee A_d'Hollander, Mr François) is assigned to Buyer Materials.

2.  EX140.Chief Financial Officer (employee Horton, Ms. Connor) is assigned to Charge Account 1130.

3.  PDR810.Production Director (employee Bomma,Mr. Ramesh) is assigned to Charge Account 1120.
