E1: 04: Disallow Special Hidden Characters in Invoice Number Field (VINV) in Voucher Entry Programs (P0411, P011SV) (Doc ID 2751159.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 10, 2021

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Currently the Invoice Number (VINV) value on voucher entry programs allows special hidden characters to be entered/saved as a unique part of the invoice number.  This can result in invoice number values being saved on different voucher records that, to the human user, appear to be identical/duplicate.  An example of such a scenario is that, when data from merged cells in Excel is copied into the VINV field, hidden tab characters are saved as part of the invoice number.  The desire would be to either (1) enhance the existing processing option on the program that checks for duplicate invoice number values to detect this scenario, or (2) create a UDC table driven capability to exclude certain characters from being accepted in the VINV field.
