EEX 9.2: Expense Report Line Expense Type Field Not Being Properly Updated When Modified Via Mobile Application (Doc ID 2093960.1)

Last updated on MARCH 16, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

ISSUE:

When using the Mobile Applications functionality (Fluid) to create a brand new Expense Report, it has been detected that the Expense Line Expense Type field (Record Field PS_EX_SHEET_LINE.EXPENSE_TYPE) cannot be further modified once the line has been saved. While the User can effectively change the value by choosing another valid one available at the drop down list, upon saving and returning into the Expense Report main page, the Transaction Line still displays the old selected value, confirming that the change was not properly stored/committed at the Database level.

REPLICATION STEPS:

     - Log into the FSCM Online Application as User ID VP1
     - Navigate to: Employee Self-Service > Mobile Applications
     - Click on the EXPENSES icon
     - Click on the section called: Create Expense Report
     - At the Expense Header level, add the following values:
          - Description = GCS Expense Type Test
          - Business Purpose = Consulting Services
          - Location = NWYK
     - Click on the SAVE button
     - Click on the ADD EXPENSE button
     - At the Expense Line level, add the following values:
          - Date = Today's Date
          - Expense Type = TRAINING COST
          - Payment Type = Cash
          - Expense Billing Code = internal
          - Transaction Amount = 100.00
          - Currency = US Dollar
          - Description = GCS Expense Type Test
     - Click on the SAVE button
     - Once back at the 'Edit Expense Report' page, click on the Expense Line just created
     - From the Expense Type drop down list, select a different available value, such as SUPPLIES
     - Click on SAVE button
     - Once back again at the 'Edit Expense Report' page, confirm that the Expense Type value displayed at the Expense Line created is TRAINING COST, instead of SUPPLIES

To gather more information concerning this scenario and its related problem, refer to the available Replication Steps Word Document here linked containing the complete configuration and the replication steps necessary to reproduce the issue.

BUSINESS IMPACT:

The Expense Report Line Expense Type field (PS_EX_SHEET_LINE.EXPENSE_TYPE) does not get updated with the modified selected value from the available drop down list. Users are unable to successfully store the changes made online via the Mobile Applications (Fluid).

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

As long as the Expense Report transaction is in Pending status, the User should be enabled to perform any changes they see fit, such as modifying the Expense Type field value of an existing Transaction Line.
