Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Cancelling an approved Purchase Order (PO) from the Purchase Order Summary form is not working as expected. It is triggering document approval thus making the document to become stuck in an 'In Process' status.

it is expected that if the PO Line/Shipment is canceled from 'PO Summary' form, then the document's original status will be retained.  For example if the PO was in an Approved status originally, then after the PO Line/Shipment cancel, a new revision will be created and it would automatically move to approved status. 

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Create a PO and save
2. The user approves the PO from the notification
3. Query the PO in PO Summary
4. Cancel a line/shipment from Tools > Control and save the change
5. Navigate to PO Summary form and query the same PO and a status of 'In Process' is shown
