SCENARIO OF ISSUE

1. User Preferences: VP1 is not approver
2. Buyer Setup: Default PO Status =  'Pending Approval/Approved'
3. Create PO and save: PO status = 'Pending Approval' - It is OK
4. Change Buyer Default PO status setup to: 'Open'
5. Create a new PO and save: PO Status = 'Open'. Not able to send to approval because there is no Approval icon, the system should allow to send to 'pending approval' when PO is created as status 'Open' even user preferences is not checked as 'approver'
