When attempting to make a change to a document the error message is generated:

When a document is returned to the submitter after an approver could not be found with enough authority to approve the Purchase Order (PO) a Null value is created in the action history table. This signifies a pending action by the approver. Due to this if the original state of the document was 'Rejected' then in the case of 'No Approver Found', after the document was returned to the submitter, the document would not be able to be updated. This was because the last action in action history was pending on the approver (NULL action code), hence no other person can take an action.


Additionally Wf_Engine_Util.Function_Call(PO_APPROVAL_LIST_WF1S.INSERT_ACTION_HISTORY error may be seen in the wfstatus.
