Symptoms

Dispatched PO's changing to Approved when entered with Purchase Order Activity. We tried editing a Purchase Order which was Dispatched and Received by providing values to the Purchase Order Activities link. As soon as it was saved the Purchase Order went back to Approved status with a need to Dispatch the PO once again.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate to Add/Update PO and Open the existing dispatched Purchase order

2. Navigate to PO Activities

3. Add the Due Date
ii. Give the sequence Number
iii. Enter the Comments and check the “Done” check Box
Iii. Click Ok

4. Before saving the PO the status of PO is same, dispatched.

5. Save the PO. Now the PO id will change from “Dispatched” to “Approved”.

6. After entering comments and saving the existing dispatched PO, the status of the PO will change from the dispatched to Approved
