1862034 - You Cannot Edit a Business Document Because It Is Being Edit By Yourself


When you try to edit a business document an error message is displayed informing that you cannot edit such document because it is being edited by yourself.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Log on to the System.
  2. Go to Travel & Expenses work center.
  3. Select Travel & Expenses work view.
  4. Open any Expense Report by clicking twice (double-clicking) on it with your mouse.
  5. The following error message is displayed:
    This expense report is currently being edited by <<your_username>>

Obs.: This issue is reproduced in several different ways by using different business documents.


The System opens business documents on a single-click rather than double-click.


To solve this issue, make a single-click to open the required business document, thus it avoids opening it twice.
