 Integrity Issues
 Question 1 - Why are commitments incorrect after a receipt, a receipt reversal or a voucher reversal?
 Question 2 - What is the difference between final and proof mode in the Commitment Integrity Report (R40910)?
 Question 3 - When should Purge/Rebuild/Repost process occur?  
 Question 4 - If an integrity issue is seen on commitments when multiple simultaneous changes to a line have been made (e.g., change the amount and the account), how can that be corrected?
 Question 5 - What happens if the Encumbrance Rollover report R4317 is not run after the fiscal year is closed?
 Question 6 - Encumbrance Rollover Report (R4317) has not been run in several years and report R40910 is showing many commitment integrity issues between F43199 and F0902, can this be fixed?
 Question 7 - Why does R40910 shows commitment Integrity for purchase orders with subledger Type W, even though the data in F4311, F43199 and F0902 appears to be correct?
 Question 8 - R40910 Commitment Integrity Report PDF is showing an Audit Trail for an account that includes a positive amount with no subledger and a negative amount with a subledger.  The R43199P/R00993/R00932 purge/rebuild/repost process was used in an attempt to resolve the subledger difference, but the account still displays on the R40910 integrity report.  How did this occur and how can it be corrected?
 Question 9 - We experience integrity issues if we reverse a receipt for a commitment, then cancel the order, then post the reversal.  This does not occur if we post the reversal then cancel the order line.  Is this a bug?

 Question 2 - What is the purge/rebuild/repost process?
 Question 3- Why are there still integrity problems after Purge/Rebuild/Repost?
