Send Back to Preparer Response does Not set PO to Rejected Status for Imported Purchase Orders that Fail Funds Reservation (Doc ID 2032433.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2015

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

When using the Import Standard Purchase Orders program (PDOI) to import a Purchase Order (PO) that fails funds reservation during approval after the PO is imported, the following problem occurs:

When the user opens the Unable to Reserve notification and clicks "Send Back to Preparer" the PO incorrectly remains in Pre-Approved status, instead of moving to Rejected status.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Use PDOI to import a PO
2. The PO that is imported fails funds reservation (as expected)
3. User responds to the "Unable to Reserve" notification with Send Back to Preparer
4. The PO remains in Pre-Approved status incorrectly
