Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA)


After upgrading from Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management (PFT) 6.0 to PFT 6.1, you can no longer define an Allocation with "0" as the Constant value.  After you enter a zero constant value on the Operator screen, when you click on the "Save" button, a window opens with the following error message:

1080 Please enter constant value.


The error prevents you from saving an Allocation with a constant of 0.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Profitability Management
  2. Create a new Static Driver Allocation
  3. Go to the Operator screen, select "Constant", and enter a value of "0"
  4. Complete the Allocation's definition
  5. Click on Save

The error message appears.
