PO Requires Full Approval After Splitting a PO Line to Multiple Shipments - Even Though Changes Are Within PO Approval Tolerances (Doc ID 1991253.1)

Last updated on MARCH 14, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version to 12.2.8 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When splitting a Purchase Order (PO) line into multiple shipments, this will cause the PO to require reapproval.   On resubmitting the revised PO for approval, the PO requires full approval and follows the complete approval hierarchy again.  As the changes are within the reapproval tolerance rules, it is expected that on reapproving the revised PO it would be approved right away, instead of requiring full approval.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a PO line with a quantity of 40 and one promised by date.
2. Approve the PO.
3. Split the PO line into 2 shipments of 11 and 29 and enter different promised by dates.
4. Save the PO.  The Purchase Order them  moves into the approval hierarchy even though the amount did not change.
