JD Edwards World EDI - Version A9.2 cume 1 to A9.4 [Release A9.2 to A9.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Work Day Calendar (P00071) is set up to define work days, weekends and holidays. When a purchase order is added using Enter Purchase Orders (P4311), both the Requested (DRQJ) and Scheduled Pick Date (PDDJ) fields are edited against the Work Day Calendar. Adding a Requested or Scheduled Pick Date field that is defined as a non working day, generates the soft error 038I - Date specified is not a valid work day. However, the Inbound Add (P471411) EDI 865 import program treats error 038I as a hard error when entering a non working day.
