 adding iProcurement Setup for a new company on our Production environment.
For 2 Categories, SmartForm Setup shows Error for "invalid category".
But Categories are valid and assigned to a Category Set.

2. Assign Item Category to Category Set
3. Assign PO Expense Account Rule
4. Create a SmartForm and select the Category: Category is available in LOV
5. Select the Category: Get Error “Select a valid value”.
