When submitting a Change Order to decrease the amount of a Purchase Order (PO), a failed Funds Check error is received due to the Budget Period being closed for Budget Control. A Change Order with a closed Budget Period fails Funds Check. Therefore a negative Change Order cannot be entered.

Example: FEB-20 period needs to be open in order to put money back in the MAY-20 period account, but the FEB-20 period is closed. 

The distribution failed funds check.
Budget Period closed for control budget.
