Why is purchase requisition approval being re-opened if I delete a line on the subsequent PO

We have purchase requisition approval via workflow, which is then converted to PO if approved.

We have recently deleted open lines on POs that are not longer required, and this is causing the purchase requisition to be re-circulated via workflow for approval?

The POs have multiple lines but we are only deleting a sub-set of these lines as the other lines have been delivered and invoiced etc.

The purchase requisitions are for Non-Stock items so are not created via MRP process - they are manually created via ME51N.

How can we delete lines no longer required on POs without having the purchase requisition being re-circulated for approval?

In standard, anything changes in po is not cause of resetting release strategy of purchase requisition.

If it is happening in your system, then you need to check is there any additional custom development.
