Goal


Why is system automatically approving other business unit when denying interunit journal using Approval Framework?

Example:
1. Add an interunit journal for business unit US007.
2. Journal line 1 is linked to business unit US007 and line 2 is linked to business unit US004.
3. Edit journal.
4. Submit for approval. On the 'Approval' tab you will see the following 2 lines:

Line 1:
Approval Status: Pending Approval
BUSINESS_UNIT=US007,JOURNAL_ID=0000000355,JOURNAL_DATE=2011-05-24,BUSINESS_UNIT_LN=US004:Pending

Line 2:
Approval Status: Pending Approval
BUSINESS_UNIT=US007,JOURNAL_ID=0000000355,JOURNAL_DATE=2011-05-24,BUSINESS_UNIT_LN=US007:Pending

5. Open Worklist, click on link to open journal and change Approval Status to Deny and click on Submit button.

Approval tab will now show:

Line 1:
Approval Status: Approved to Post
BUSINESS_UNIT=US007,JOURNAL_ID=0000000355,JOURNAL_DATE=2011-05-24,BUSINESS_UNIT_LN=US004:Approved

Line 2:
Approval Status: Denied
BUSINESS_UNIT=US007,JOURNAL_ID=0000000355,JOURNAL_DATE=2011-05-24,BUSINESS_UNIT_LN=US007:Pending

Why is journal line for US004 automatically approved (Approval Status is changed to Approved to Post)/
