EGL9.2: FS_JGEN does not use “Alt Journal Date” When Creating Journal if the GL Period Is Partially Closed By Ledger Code. (Doc ID 2048835.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2019

Applies to:

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


Journal Generator Template is configured with “Begin Date – From Period” for the field *Alt Journal Date" and “Accounting Date on Transaction” for *Journal Date field. The site is using the option to close periods by ledger code.

When FS_ JGEN is run on a closed period, the journals will be created successfully on the first day of the next open period. Ex: If April is closed, and FS_JGEN is run for a voucher with accounting date on April, the journal will be created on 05/01/2015. This works perfectly when the full period is closed for all ledger codes.

However, if the period is closed partially (only for some ledger codes), the system does not work as expected. The journal is created in the closed period for the ledger code and goes into error status.
