External Award Load Process Posts Authorized Amount for Item Types not Authorized

(Doc ID 2006030.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 13, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : CS 9

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When running external award (EA) load, the process is incorrectly populating a STDNT_AWARDS.AUTHORIZED_AMOUNT for certain students, which also then reflects on the award activity record. Some additional investigation determined that the authorized amount belonged to a different student from earlier in the same load batch. 

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
This amount should not be populated since the aid isn't being - and was never - authorized.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create file for EA - for example, for students who are having a fall/winter/spring award reduced to fall only.
2. Load the file into staging
3. Run the EA load process

WHAT IS WORKING
--------------------------
The problem does not occur for most students, but just a relatively small percentage.
