Have you ever encountered an issue in the Purchase Contracts application a previous revision's contract status is change to history (REVISD) when the purchase contract's status is changed to WSTART on approval.
Following steps have been used to reproduce the issue:
1. Go to Contracts > Purchase Contracts > Create a new purchase contract.
Fill in the following fields
2. Select Action> Authorize Sites > Select Sites > Bedford > click OK.
3. Change status to Approved.
4. Select Action> Revise contract and the revision is created.
5. Change start date to a date in the future.
6. Approve the revised contract. The status is changed to WSTART.
7. Click List tab > Enter Contract 1058.
The previous contract status is changed to REVISD.
Resolving the problem:
If the contract start date is in the future then its status on approval will be WSTART (even if there isn't a revision for it).
The WSTART status is similar to APPR status for the contract with a start date in the future.
