2. Make sure the Buyer's Default PO Status(buyer setup) as "Open"
3. Create a new PO.(Save the PO, do NOT submit yet)>
4. Select to submit for approval (workflow is triggered and pending approver can be seen under "view approvals")
5. Note the approval date is now set on the PO... it should not be yet!
