Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The system allows a Contract to be created with a Maximum Amount = 0.00.

The system is also allowing releases to be created for this contract when the Max Amount = 0.00.  These releases exceed the actual Maximum Amount which = 0.00.

 Expecting the system to give errors indicating that the transaction would exceed the contract max amount allowed.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a General Contract.  Enter the Supplier and some Items. (Maximum amount should be left at 0.00)
2. Save the contract.
3. Create a purchase order that references the contract and Save.
4. Review the contract and notice that now a release amount (from po) has been recorded.

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users can create contract releases even though the contract max amount = 0.00
