When a Purchase Order (PO) is Closed, the Encumbrance Balance on the PO Inquiry Page Displays as 0.00 before Budget Checking (Doc ID 1620454.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 04, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Purchasing - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When PO is closed, the encumbrance balance on PO Inquiry page displays the amount as zero even before it has been budget checked.

Steps to recreate the issue:

  1. Create a new PO. Budget check. Encumbrance is created.
  2. Using Buyer's Workbench, close the PO. Do not budget check.
  3. At this point, the encumbrance still exists in Commitment Control (Budget Details page, PO Accounting Entries page). However, PO Inquiry page displays Encumbrance Balance as $0.00.
