Learn how to edit Purchase Order in Oracle Fusion if you have submitted it already

Today I will take you through the process of how Buyer can edit Purchase Order while it is on pending approval status. Please note that in our case Order will not be finally approved by all Approvers. When submitting Order to approval, Purchase Order status changes to Pending Approval. And it is much more likely that buyers make mistakes while Order creation and submission and want to modify the Order before it is finally approved.

Purchase Order Withdrawal

Say Purchase Order has been submitted to Approval by Buyer already. As soon as Order is submitted status changes to Pending Approval.

Now Buyer realized that needs to do some changes to Purchase Order. In this case, Buyer withdraws Order from Approval by clicking on Withdraw from Actions.

Provide a reason why you withdrew the Order and click on Ok.

Query Order again from Manage Orders page. You can see the status of Order has been changed to Withdrawn.

Click on Purchase Order, go to Actions and Edit Purchase Order to do necessary modifications.

After you do your changes, submit Order to approval again.

That is it, guys:) Hope you are clear with the topic. If not, please do not hesitate to reach me.
