4. Verify that a purchase order is created and approved.

5. The requisitioner makes a change to the requisition and submits that change.

7. Once approved, the buyer should receive a notification that there is a change request for the purchase order.

8. Purge Obsolete Workflow Runtime Data concurrent program is run for all Requisition and PO workflow item types

9. The buyer tries to accept the purchase order change and the error occurs:

ORA-20002: 3103: Attribute 'RESPONDER_USER_NAME' does not exist for item

10. The PO is now remaining IN PROCESS status.
