Symptoms

There appears to be a limitation on the number of Speed Codes that can be entered in the Automatic Accounting Instructions. Document WS: 09: Setting up Automatic Accounting Instructions (AAIs) for General Accounting and Financial Reporting (Doc ID 626961.1)states that "The X0901 reads the first 50 codes, whether they are valid or not. For ex: the first speed code is a dot (which is not valid) but it is read, if a new code is entered for ex: SP[ it is sorted in the appropriate place in the special characters, it does not fall to the end of the codes. So what happens is this is now counted in the maximum of 50 codes and one of the alpha codes might stop functioning.". A user can enter more that 50 speed codes and no message is displayed advising that the number of speed codes have exceeded the limitation. However if a user attempts to use a speed code in a program such as Journal Entry - P0911 and that speed code is greater than the limitation number, a message (error number 0028) will display in the program that the Account Number is Invalid. This error message is misleading.
