E1: 05: Labor Distribution Instructions (P050151) Will Not Save Employee's Position ID When Job Type Is Blank (Doc ID 2584821.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 24, 2022

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne HCM Foundation - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to add a Position ID to a record in the Labor Distribution Instructions (P050151) the system will not save the record unless the Job Type field is also populated. This is not the case in the employee organizational form P0801ORG where you can enter a Position ID without a job type and the change is saved.


  1. Go to p050151 pull up your test employee and add a new record with a Position ID and no Job type
  2. Tab down to the next line and notice that the Position ID is cleared; system does not allow you to save the record
  3. Try the same test again but this time enter a Position ID and a Job Type and notice that the system will save the record
  4. If you go to the employee organizational form (P0801ORG) and try entering a Position ID without a Job Type the system takes it and saves the record
