Releasing Purchase Order Error

HI All,

I am working on a PO Release strategy issue.

I have two level release to the PO.

Now when the first level is releasing the PO what is happening is that the status is getting updated for the second level.

Ideally it should happen for the the first level.

But its not happening.

Please advice.

    While defining the release stratergy in the last step, you have a option of defining the status of the release stratergy.


    S1 S2

    - - Blocked (if both did not release then it is blocked)

    X - Blocked (If s1 level releases then also blocked)

    X X Released (if both levels releases then released.

    Check this setting.

    Thanks & Regards,

      HI Kiran ,

      I tried to create a PO in Quality client

      On displaying it & seeing the release tab in header details,

      A yellow triangle is adjacent to code-09.

      Code 09 is the higher level. The yellow triangle should be with the code -08 also as the first this person has to approce the PO befor going to the higher level.

      I have checked all the spro settings as such.

      Can you advice.
