Entry Of DFF In Web ADI for GL Journal Ends With Error ED01 During Journal Import (Doc ID 2021085.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.2.4 and later
Oracle Applications Desktop Integrator - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Web ADI , define a descriptive flexfield (DFF), associated with value set that has an ID and  a description.

For example:
Employee id,  Employee name
1000              Andrea
2000              Janice

When entering data in Web ADI, if the user enters 1000, the user is able to import this data with no issues.
If instead, the user invokes the LOV selecting the value "Andrea" then the field is populated with the name "Andrea" not the expected ID 1000.
When this data is imported into GL, the journal import fails with error:  ED01  The context and attribute values do not form a valid descriptive flexfield for Journals - Journal Entry Lines.

Changes

 Upgrade to release 12. This worked fine in Rel 11i.
