R12: AP: Prepayment Invoice Requires Approval After Discard and Add New Line and Invoice Amount Still the Same (Doc ID 2967980.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 25, 2023

Applies to:

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


Prepayment Invoice requires workflow approval after discard and add new line.

After line discarded and added, the prepayment invoice amount is the same original amount.

The invoice is validated. The status on the header is "Needs Reapproval" or "Required"

The action "Initiate Approval"  in the "Actions" window (to initiate Workflow approval) is greyed out and the concurrent program "Invoice Approval Workflow" is not picking up the invoice either.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Log into Oracle Applications using Payables responsibility.
  2. Open the Invoice Workbench
    (N) Invoices > Entry > Invoice
  3. Create Prepayment Invoice
  4. Validate and WF Approve > OK.
  5. Account the prepayment > OK.
  6. Discard Lines from the Prepayment.
  7. Re-Validate the Prepayment > OK.
  8. Re-Accounted the prepayment > OK.
  9. Prepayment Validated and accounted OK 
    But, the Workflow Approval Status shows "Needs Reapproval"
