Error: Amount Limit on Contract Less Than Total Released Against Contract (Doc ID 2234012.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Using Purchasing, Version 12.1.3


Actual:
Upon submitting the contract for approval - error/warning is given.

Expected:
The warning should not occur when submitting the contract for approval.

Error:
Error: Amount Limit on contract less than total released against contract.


Replication Steps:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Query the contract - submit for approval.
2. Find that warning is encountered.

Previously the amount released included the approved and incomplete standard purchase orders - so the buyers could just update the amount limit over amount released.

Changes

The Amount Released on the contract is now the total of Approved Standard Purchase Orders referencing the Contract.
Incomplete purchase orders are not included in the amount released - this is a new change introduced in the latest codeline.
