Recently, we noticed that our outstanding encumbrances were not accurate for our Monthly payroll. It appears that most of our salary encumbrances were liquidated during regular monthly processing on 28-FEB-2011. During later runs of the CUEL process, some of those encumbrances were re-created and some were liquidated again. There was no apparent reason for the inconsistent liquidation and recreation.

We use a fast formula to calculate these encumbrance amounts. The log files of the CUEL Payroll Worker Processes indicated that the correct element IDs were being passed to the CREATE_LINES procedure. However, the DETERMINE_ENC_AMOUNT procedure was not passing the salary element ID to the fast formula program.
