    We have a Req Approval flow on our system that was built for us by a Lawson Consultant several years ago.  Most recently, our Purchasing department is interested in seeing how this process flow works in hopes of implementing it for their requisition approval process.

    There's a portion in the flow that is supposed to get the object ID of the items on the req., account number, and sub account number from the reqline, and from there, determine who in our organization to send the e-mail notification to. The logic in this portion of the flow appears to be flawed because it reads all the conditions as 'false' and doesn't send the notification to anybody even though I hard coded an account number specific to our IT department during my testing.

    Does anyone have a similar process built that they would be willing to share with me or can someone have a look at my process to see what is wrong in the logic?

    Without reviewing your flow it is difficult to properly comment. We have an involved requisition approval process based on requisition header, requisition line and mmdist data. Based on the information gathered, we determine which Inbakset roles should have the requisition redirected for approval. After all appropriate approvals are obtained, then it is complete.

    As for who receives the email / approval, we simply used boolean variables. Initially false. When condition met, set to true and redirect to that Inbasket role later in the flow.

    @kflores01

    What you've described is exactly what our req. approval flow is supposed to do!

    One of our Lawson Query Nodes also queries MMDIST. However, we have two other Lawson Query nodes that look at GLCCHARTDTL and GLACCMXVAL.

    Can I send my flow to you so you can have a look, please?
