On : 12.2.3 version, Approvals - Req, PO

Change order tolerances for Purchasing doesn't work when modifying a Purchase Order (PO) need by date.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Menu: Setup > Tolerances and Routings > Change Order or Setup > Tolerances and Routings > Change Order (setup Need by date and Promised date can change 60 days)
2. Using the Purchasing responsibility, Enter PO
3. Approve the PO by the next level approver
4. Change the need by date from 16-oct-14 is 17-oct-14
5. The system then changes the status from Approved to Requires Reapproval
6. The Buyer clicks on the approve button but the PO is forwarded to the Manager

It is expected the PO should be automatically approved because the change is within the tolerance setting.
