Symptoms

KK-Budget Journals

ENVIRONMENT
----------------------
Application Release : FSCM 9.1 MP7
PeopleTools : Peopletools 8.51.09
Database Type : Oracle 11.2.0.3

SETUP
---------------------------------------
Two commitment control ledger groups that have the parent child relationship.
The parent is set to track with budget
The child is set to track without budget.
The 'Child budget exceeds' Option is NOT selected

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------------------------------
After creating a KK Control Budget journal for child with 'Generate parent budget' selected at the header level of the journal, when trying to post the journal, it throws an exception: 'Exceeds Parent budget'.

If rerunning the budget check process, it posts successfully.
This is intermittent issue and has happened on several occasions

 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
--------------------------------------
Since 'Generate parent budget' is selected, the system would also create the parent entry. Therefore 'Exceed parent budget' error should not return.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a control budget journal for child budget and selecte the 'Generate parent budget' at the header level of the journal.
2. Post the journal, it throws out an exception: 'Exceeds Parent budget'.
3. Rerun the budget check process and it posts successfully and generate child and parent budget.
