You noticed that one item of invoice has Purchase order reference and other item does not have Purchase order reference ,the approval is not triggered for the one that has Purchase order reference where the two conditions are met.
SAP Business ByDesign
Reproducing the Issue
In approval process of Supplier invoice you have a approval step/steps that has below conditions together or separate.
1.Item Without Purchase Order is Yes
2.Item Without Purchase Order is No
Then create a supplier invoice with one item having Purchase order reference and other having no Purchase order reference.
You will notice that approval is not triggered for the one that has Purchase order reference though both conditions are met.
Currently we don't support Item level approval of Supplier invoice.
Also in general regarding this condition we expect approval is required when Item has no purchase order reference and thus system checks if the Item has noPurchase orderreference to trigger approval, once approval is triggered then even if other same condition exist that will be ignored.
This feature is not supported in the current release of SAP Business ByDesign.
