Impact:

After correcting the invalid chartfield combination, the PO_LINE_DISTRIB.CHARTFIELD_STATUS should update to V and the PO_HDR.POST_DOC should update to Y.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Pre-requisite:
1. Business Unit to be used must have a Combination Edit option set to "Recycle" in the Purchasing Options page.
2. The SETID of the BU must have a chartfield combination where it will be invalid.

Steps:
1. Create a Purchase Order in the PO with incorrect chartfields.
2. Save the PO. (at this point PO_LINE_DISTRIB.CHARTFIELD_STATUS = "R" | PO_HDR.POST_DOC = "N")
3. Open the PO in the Maintain Distributions page under Purchasing > Purchase Orders.
4. Enter the valid chartfields in the affected distribution lines.
5. Save. (at this point PO_LINE_DISTRIB.CHARTFIELD_STATUS = "V" | PO_HDR.POST_DOC = "N").
