Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.2.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When revising a po with the change summary column populated originally-users leave the change summary field null on the revision of the po when approving and the original text is still there.

Steps to Reproduce


1. Create a new po and approve-populate the Change Summary field



2. Review the PO data-the field CHANGE_SUMMARY is populated



3. Revise the PO and Approve-leave the Change Summary field NULL/Empty



4. Review the PO Data-the value put in initially in the CHANGE_SUMMARY field is still present. This does not change with each Approval/Revision
