1913396 - Output tab in Purchase Order shows an additional "Changed Purchase Order" entry.

Symptom

After posting a goods receipt for a Purchase Order, the supplier received a changed purchase order.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the 'Purchase Requests and Orders' work center.
  2. Go to the 'Purchase Orders' view.
  3. Find the purchase order and Click the 'Edit' button.
  4. Navigate to the 'Output History' tab 

 There is an additional entry, at least one for the Purchase Order and an additional one for the 'Changed Purchase Order'. 

Cause

When the Post Goods Receipt is done, it triggers a change to see if the PO and any extension field have been changed in order to keep the PO consistent and triggers the Output if necessary.

If you look at the 'Change' tab for the Purchase Order, you will find that some key fields were changed before the Post Good Receipt was done.
