Abstract: For $ \mu ,\nu \in b{a_ + }(\Omega ,\mathfrak{A})$ it is shown that the existence of a net of nonnegative functions $ {f_{\alpha '}}$ that are primitive relative to $ \mathfrak{A}$ and satisfy $ {\lim _\alpha }{\smallint _A}{f_\alpha }d\mu = \nu (A),A \in \mathfrak{A}$, is equivalent to the condition $ \nu \lesssim \mu $, i.e. $ \mu (A) = 0$ for some $ A \in \mathfrak{A}$ implies $ \nu (A) = 0$. Furthermore, as an application it is proved that for $ \mu ,\nu \in b{a_ + }(\Omega ,\mathfrak{A})$ satisfying $ \nu \lesssim \mu $ and any extension $ \mu ' \in b{a_ + }(\Omega ,\mathfrak{A}')$ of $ \mu $, where $ \mathfrak{A}'$ denotes some algebra of subsets of $ \Omega $ containing $ \mathfrak{A}$, there exists some extension $ \nu ' \in b{a_ + }(\Omega ,\mathfrak{A}')$ of $ \nu $ such that $ \nu ' \lesssim \mu '$ is valid.
