Chartfields Are Not Being Validated In The Project Costing Accounting Rules Setup (Doc ID 1622092.1)

Last updated on JUNE 28, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Project Costing - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Most of the chartfields are not being validated in the Project Costing Accounting Rules setup. Only the account and department fields in the accounting distribution will validate non-wildcard entries and generate errors if they are invalid. The other target chartfields allow invalid data to be saved.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The Accounting Rules setup component should ensure that the “%” value is the only allowed value that does not exist in the prompt tables for the non-Account chartfields.


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate to Set Up Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Project Costing > General Options > Accounting Rules
2. Open an existing accounting rule.
3. Update each of the distribution target chartfields, entering invalid data (e.g. XXXXX) and save.


BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
Due to this issue, users may create accounting rules that generate invalid accounting distributions.
