Payroll Journal Import Errors: 'EF04 - Invalid Flexfield' (Doc ID 1267154.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 09, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Payroll - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to import payroll journal entries into General Ledger (GL), an error is received:

EF04 - invalid flexfield

All accounts are enabled and there are no cross validation rule violations.

It is found that after applying patches, two of the costing segment values contain a null value after a Payroll or Quick Pay is processed.

This is causing the problem when importing the data into General Ledger.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Apply patches
Run Payroll and Costing processes
Transfer to GL
Import data to GL and get error.
