Purchase Order Approvals

Calling anyone familiar with Purchase Orders, Activity Rules, Purchase Order Approvals.

I'm using a simple Approval Route, with one approver, level say $1000.

Enter an order for $1500 :- per the Activity Rules, it goes in at 220/230.

Enquire on the order using P43081, I can approve the order OK :- it advances to 230/280.

Repeat the process. This time, reject the order. Re-enquire on the order in P4310. The statuses are 230/220. Whilst this is valid (per the Activity Rules), when the user amends the order, the statuses don't change, and the order can't be enquired on in P43081 for this second time approval.

Any thoughts on what I'm missing?

Cheers.
 
I usually put in a rejected status code of say 225. Have the rejected order
default to 225 for rejections and make sure you have a 230-280, 225 Order
Acticity Rule for Approvals and a 225-230 for the rejection. Also check
that you do not have an overide status code in P4310.
Also check the ststus codes in Approvals Tab for P4310. Awaiting = 230
Approved = 280.

This gives me the same issue though. With your suggestions, when an order is rejected using P43081, the order takes status 230/225. An order at this status can be revised OK (i.e. the user can amend the order in P4310 in keeping with the wishes of the approver). But if the Approver attempts to approve the order for this second time, you see Invalid Status errors in P43081.

Bryan try an additional status code of 280 for the 225 Order Activity Rule. This issue is sounding strange though. Again check the processing options of P43081.
