This document is intended to step the user through the process of obtaining and installing the required Payroll year-end processing ESUs for US (W2s) and Canada (T4s) when they become available.  This document will show the steps for only the 9.2 ESU, but the steps will be similar for all release levels.


NOTE: Examples and reports in this document may not reflect the ESU number for your release for the current year. These are examples and although the ESU number may be different, the processes and reports should be similar.

Resolving Payroll Year-End Processing Errors Due to ESU Install/Spec Merge

Often object or UBE errors will occur with the Payroll Year-End processing after the ESU has been installed. Investigation often shows that the problem is due to a merge of the object (i.e. "Change" status rather than "Replace") during the ESU Specification Merge (as seen on the R98700 report). If experiencing looping, incomplete jobs, jobs ending in error or unexpected results with the Payroll year-end objects, please review the steps within this document for verifying the merge status of the object(s) on the Specification Merge report (R98700). [Click here to go directly to this section.] If the status for any objects on the merge report is shown as "Change", please follow the steps to reinstall the ESU to have a "Replace" status for all affected objects.


NEW! A Diagnostic Assistant has been provided to verify the Payroll Year-End ESU Specification Merge (R98700) has no merged objects. Access document "E1: ESU: Diagnostic Assistant (DA) for Validating the ESU Spec Merge for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Accounts Payable / GL (1099), Canadian Payroll (T4), and US Payroll (W2) Year End" Document 2092042.2 for the utility download and instructions.
