Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.1 to 12.3 [Release 12.1 to 12.3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Auto-Approval Tolerance is not working as expected when tolerances are defining for Standard Purchase Orders.
When the line quantity and PO Total amount is within the tolerance defined, Purchase Order is going to complete Approval cycle.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
When the line quantity and PO Total amount is within the tolerance defined, Purchase Order should get approved at Buyer level instead of going to Approval

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login to the E-Business Suite and choose the Purchasing Module.
2. Navigate to Setups > Tolerances and Control > Change Order
3. Provide the following values for “Auto-Approval Tolerance for Orders”
    PO Amount: 10%
    Line Quantity: 100%
    Line Amount: 100%
4. Navigate to Purchase Orders > Purchase Orders
5. Create PO and approved with complete approval cycle:
    PO amount: 120,000,000 
    Line quantity: 10,000
    Line amount: 12,000,000
6. Increased Line Quantity to 10,050
    As above setup it should be auto-approved.
    But after buyer click approve, Purchase Order is moving to complete approval cycle
