PeopleSoft Enterprise Contracts: SYSTEM ALLOWS EVENT DATE TO FALL BEFORE ACCOUNTING DISTRIBUTION EFFECTIVE DATE (Doc ID 1513773.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 15, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Contracts - Version 9 to 9.1 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Create a contract with an amount-based line. Create a milestone billing plan. On the Accounting Distribution page, the effective date is the current date (06/26/2012). Open the billing plan and add an event with event date 06/26/2012 and set the status to Ready. Activate the contract.
 
Re-open the billing plan event page. Change the Event Status to Pending and event date 06/01/2012 and save the page. The system returns an error stating that the event date must be equal or greater than the accounting distribution effective date, which is correct.
 
Sign out of PeopleSoft and log back in. Re-open the billing plan event page again. Change the event date to 06/01/2012. This date falls before the accounting distribution effective date. Save the page. Change the event status to Ready. Save the page. The system did not return the above error and allowed an event date to be saved, which falls before the accounting distribution effective date. This is wrong, as it should not allow this.
