Symptoms

The Released amount of the Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) included both Approved and Unapproved Releases’ Total.

This means the ‘Released’ field equals to the grand total of all Releases’ Total in any status ( Approved, Incomplete, In Process, Requires Reapproval)

Some of unapproved releases maybe due to the error: “Total released amount must be less than agreement amount limit”

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:
Unapproved Releases’ Total should not be included in the Released amount of BPA.

Steps To Reproduce:

With an example of Release Total greater than BPA ‘Amt Agreed’:

1. Create a BPA with ‘Amt Agreed’ = 100.00 at the header and approve it.
2. Create a Release for total 101.00 against that BPA. Submit for Approval -> Get error
    Error: Total released amount must be less than agreement amount limit .
    The Release will have the status = Incomplete or In Process or Requires Reapproval
3. The Blanket Agreement shows
    Status = Approved, Amount Limit = 100.00, Total Released = 101.00
