Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase requests and Orders
  2. Select New Purchase Order under Common Tasks
  3. Under Items tab, enter a product that was used before in previous purchase order
  4. Select Check
  5. Warning message pops up: the purchase amount is higher than 50%


This is the default system behavior which throws the warning but it will not stop ordering of purchase document.
