Send Request Approval on Purchase Order

I am doing the send request approval in Purchase order. It says User ID does not exist in the user setup table.

Here’ the procedure I follow.

Create the Required Users

The three users now exist as user IDs in the database that can be selected in the

approval user setup steps.

Set up the Approval Hierarchy

Follow these steps to set up the three users in an approval hierarchy:

  1. Click Administration→Application Setup→Document

Approval→Approval Setup.

  1. In the Approval Setup window, look up in the Approvalfield and select DIRECTOR.

Administrator

This is not strictly necessary for the approval user setup to work but

is good to do as a general rule.

  1. Click User Setup to open the Approval User Setup window.

  2. Look up in the User ID fields one by one to set up the three approval

Then I test the user approval and it is ok. I even added those users in the User Setup table.

Did I miss anything? I already add them to user setup table

To demonstrate the Approval User Setup window, you must first create the following user IDs in the Database Logins window:

• Director

• Sales Manager

• Sales Person

None of the new users have roles assigned to them as that is not relevant to the approvals system.

Follow these steps to create the three users:

  1. Click Tools→Security→Database Logins.

  2. Create three User IDs as illustrated in figure 8.5. Do not assign roles.
