Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a user tries to display a Purchase Order (PO) which is in Pending Approval status and the approver is the user displaying the Purchase Order Inquiry page, the following error is received:


Field does not exist -- OPR_DEF_TBL_PM.PO_APPROVAL_AUTH (180,104)

PO_PNLS_WRK_VIEW_APPR.FieldFormula Name:ViewAppr_init PCP:1297 Statement:21

Called from:PO_PNLS_WRK.VIEW_APPR.RowInit.

Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

1) First enable Approval Framework for PO Business Unit.
2) As VP1, create a new PO.
3) The PO should be automatically submitted into the workflow when the page is saved (status = Pend Appr). If not, then submit the PO for approval.
4) Now log in as VP2, and navigate to the PO inquiry.
5) Select the PO just submitted by VP1, and the above error occurs.
