Approval Terms Exceeded


Hi Experts,

I have an Approval Procedure set up to stop users exceeding a BP's Commitment Limit.

When adding a new Sales Order, the approval procedure kicks in if the value of the order takes the BP over its commitment limit.

If I add a zero value Sales Order, the system allows me to Add the order as the commitment limit has not been reached.

The problem is that I can then go back into the Zero Value Sales Order and change it to any value I like. On hitting Update, the approval procedure is not kicking in.

Therefore, the user can circumnavigate the approval process by adding an SO for a zero value, and then later Updating the SO with a figure that will take the BP over the commitment limit.

Why is the Approval Procedure not called when Updating a document.
