Federal and State W2 Magnetic Media Files Using Wrong State Abbreviation in .mf File (Doc ID 1542856.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (US) - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When submitting the Federal or the State W2 Magnetic Media file it doesn't have the correct state abbreviation in the header row of the .mf file.  (RA line) it shows the first two characters of the city instead of the State Alpha code.

For example:

Shows as 1020 EAST LOGAN STREETYORK                  YO17401

Should be PA17401


Steps to Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Run the year end pre processor from the concurrent program

2. Run the employee w2s - no problem

3. Run the State w2 magnetic media for Pennsylvania - displays incorrectly as well

4. Submit process and reports > single request > Federal w2 magnetic media > shows the YO instead of the PA
