Hyperion Financial Management - Version: 4.0.0.0.00 to 11.1.1.1.00 - Release: 4.0 to 11.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When loading a journal file that contains negative data values, the file fails to load and gives an error message.

For example in the HFM Windows client, the "Load Journals" dialog displays "Errors in load file. Check log file for details".

On checking the log file, the message is just Error: Error saving journal

However, on checking the HsvEventLog.log file on the HFM application server that the user was connected to at the time, using the HFMErrorLogViewer.exe utility provided in the Consultant Utilities folder, the message is more explicit "Negative amount entered for a debit or credit"
