Symptoms

In Release 9.2, the Description for Match Rule ID RULE_V300 is as follows:

Life to Date Voucher Amount > PO Amount

The Long Description for RULE_V300 states the following:

The receiving tolerance is 0 and the total quantity vouchered (including previously matched vouchers) exceeds the quantity on the purchase order. An exception is not generated for an amount-only purchase order or non-purchase order receipt.

The extended price tolerance and the extended price percentage tolerance are 0, and the total amount vouchered (including previously matched vouchers) exceeds the amount on the purchase order.
