Descriptive FlexField

Symptoms

Get the following error when we try to upload a project journal through WebADI and the "Pre-validate" option. Error is:
'Category DFF :Value PJ is not a valid context for the Descriptive Flexfield PA_EXPENDITURE_ITEMS_DESC_FLEX'.

When we upload the project journal with the "Pre-Validate" option Un-checked, we are able to upload the journal into PA_transaction_interface_all table and subsequently, run PRC Transaction Import to successfully bring the journal into Project Costing.

Prior to our upgrade from 12.0.6 to 12.1.3, we were able to successfully upload project journals using WebADI with the exact same DFF configuration.

Similar errors will occur for other Integrators with Descriptive Flex Fields

Changes

 Upgrade to R12.1.3
