Services Procurement (sPro) Expense Approval Incorrectly Updates Lines to Approved (SPA_SHEET_LINE.EX_LINE_STATUS = RAP) When Only First Approval is Done on Multi-level Approval (Doc ID 2003021.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 13, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Services Procurement - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When Expense Sheet Approval is setup to have more than one approver, when the first approver approves an Expense line, SPA_SHEET_LINE.EX_LINE_STATUS is set to 'RAP', which is Approved.  This allows Batch Invoice Generation (SPF_INVGEN) to create Invoices with the Expense Sheet included.

 
STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create and Submit an Expense Sheet with more than one approver
2. First Approver approves the Expense Sheet
3. Check the table SPA_SHEET_LINE.EX_LINE_STATUS
