Last updated on APRIL 03, 2018

Applies to:

JD Edwards World Address Book - Version A9.3 and later

Symptoms

When entering an address book record through the batch upload process, users are allowed to enter alpha characters for the Parent field (VOPA8), even though this field is only numeric.  The record can be processed and no error is thrown for the incorrect alpha characters. After successfully processing the record, the parent field is blanked out.
