Last updated on JULY 11, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Expense Post Payment Processing selects transactions in “Submitted for Approval” status and sets the BUDGET_HDR_STATUS field to “I” (In Processing Status) on EX SHEET HDR. 

Specific to Expense Reports only, does not occur with Travel Authorizations.

Steps to Replicate:

-----------------------

1) Create an Expense Report

2) Submit the report

3) Budget check Expense report

4) Approve expense report

5) Stage and post liability

6) Pay via Accounts Payable pay cycle

7) Post Payment

8) Next run budget checking for Expense reports (status = Submitted for Approval)

Expected Result:

---------------------

To be able to successfully budget check expense reports.

Actual Result:

-------------------

Reports cannot be successfully budget checked because BUDGET HDR STATUS is being set to "I", when post payment is ran.   Encumbrance cannot be reversed (in certain instances)

In addition, when Approval is to occur before budget checking, expense reports cannot be approved.

 

Please see replication steps document for more details.
