Hi friend,
I think you are your user will not have the approval limitfor approving the purchase requisition. You can check through the following Navigation.

Purchase Order>Purchase Order Summary>Inquiry>Action History.

Through that navigation you will find the next approval hierarchy.

I could get some information in the metalink related to your problem.

User was not setup for approval authority but there were notification rules setup to route the notifications to that unauthorized approver. When the approval authority is circumvented by the notification rules the workflow approval list cannot respond properly and the attributes are lost.

Notification rules are not related to approval rules and routing. Notification rules is handled by FND code while the Approval Routing rules are handled by Purchasing code and these rule based systems are not integrated with each other.

To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:

1. Please ensure that users are setup with the proper approval rules and authority so when Approval Notifications are sent the users can respond without error.

2. Notification Rules can circumvent approval routing rules.


Check the metalink if the above does not solve your problem.

I have recently run into this issue as well. If you checked all of your setups and everything is correct (eg, approval authority is granted to the users in question, but you are still receiving that error) you need your system administrator to retry the workflow. Sometimes documents get "stuck" in workflow (for various reasons, too many to get into at this point) but if you double-checked your setup and your document and it seems in order, your system administrator needs to retry the previous process in the workflow environment.
