EGPAUS: Payment Summary/ETP Certs AUS Runs to No Success - Negative Number to unsigned Number field (Doc ID 2030295.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 06, 2015

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Global Payroll Australia - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When an Employee has a negative amount in their Allowance section of the Payment Summary, the App Engine GPAU PSM RPT which runs as part of PSJob Payment Summary/ETP Certs AUS, runs to No Success and errors with the following:

"negative number assigned to an unsigned field: GPAU_EE_PSM_RPT.GPAU_PSM_ALLOW1. (2,121) GPAU_PSM_RPT .INB.GBL.default.1900-01-01.Step01.OnExecute PCPC:18560 Statement:206 Process 4092 ABENDED at Step GPAU_PSM_RPT.INB.Step01 (PeopleCode) -- RC = 8 4092 GPAU_PSM_RPT INB Step01 PeopleCode 8 "

However, the Payment Summary Status is being updated from Created to Issued and the Employee is included in the ATO File - EMPDUPE.A01.


We would expect a detailed warning message and no change to the Payment Summary Status (i.e., Created) and no inclusion of the negative allowances in the ATO file. The User will take care of these Warning messages before going in to the process of Payment Summary/ETP Cert Aus. 


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Give an employee a negative Allowance (such as Stress Allowance)
2. Review Payment Summary Data AUS
3. Now run the Payment Summary/ETP Certs AUS
