Symptoms

When users are trying to create an Expense Report by providing Project and Task Numbers alone in
the 'Expense Allocations' Page and submit, the Expense Report is escalating to Expenses
Administrator. The function 'AP Validate Expense Report' in the Server Side Validation Process is
failing due to a line error. In detail, while creating an Expense Report by selecting the Project
and Task Number alone as mentioned, the 'AP_VALIDATION_ERROR' Column is getting populated (as
'PA') and this is the reason the 'AP Validate Expense Report' Function is getting failed in the
Server Side Validation Process and the Expense Report on submitting is going to Expenses
Administrator instead of the user's Approver.

ERROR
Expense report is going to expenses administrator upon submitting and stalling there.

Report.
