Applies to:

Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.3 version

Approval workflow database error occurs while attempting to approve a Requisition.

Error: ORA-20002: 3103: Attribute 'FEDERAL_FLAG' does not exist for item 'REQAPPRV/######-######'.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Submit a requisition for approval (one created prior to an upgrade).
2. Attempt to approve the requisition after the upgrade.
3. The requisition remains stuck in a status of 'In Process'.

This issue may occur when cancelling requisition line which is created in ipro and then replaced to po.



 Upgrade to 12.2.3.
