EAP 9.1+: Adding New Voucher Distribution Lines Gets Them Automatically Inserted And Displayed In Descending Order, Instead Of Ascending

(Doc ID 2142991.1)

Last updated on MAY 26, 2016

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

Symptoms

ISSUE:

Should a User decide to add new Distribution Lines at the delivered Voucher Entry page (VCHR_EXPRESS1), the + icon next to the Distribution Line #1 is to be clicked, and at the pop-up window displayed, enter the number of new rows to be added, and click OK.

Nevertheless, once the new Distribution Lines are being added, the Line # display is not following a proper order. While Line #1 remains being at the top, the next line being displayed would actually be the last one, and from then onwards, the order is descending. Instead, the system should automatically display the newly added Distribution Lines in an ascending order, which is more comprehensible, and user-friendly.

This has been identified for both Regular Voucher, and Journal Voucher styles.

While the User still can click on the Line column header to force an ascending/descending order of the displayed rows, this should not be the case. Ascending order should be the default for this page when adding new rows, and should not require the User to personalize it each time.

REPLICATION STEPS:

     1.- Log into the FSCM Online Application as User ID VP1
     2.- Navigate to: Accounts Payable > Vouchers > Add/Update > Regular Entry
     3.- Go to the Add A New Value tab, and enter the below values:
          - Business Unit = US001
          - Voucher ID = NEXT
          - Voucher Style = Regular Voucher
          - Supplier ID = USA0000008
          - Invoice Number = GCS Distrib Lines Order Test
          - Invoice Date = Today's Date
          - Gross Invoice Amount = 1000.00
          - Tax Exempt Flag = Y
     4.- Click on the ADD button
     5.- Scroll down to the Distribution Lines section
     6.- Click on the + icon, to add 5 new rows
     7.- Click OK, after having defined a value of 5 in the pop-up window displayed
     8.- Note how the system automatically adds 5 new Distribution Lines right under the already existing one. However, the Line column has its values not following an ascending order, as it would be expected

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.

ACTUAL RESULT:

The order of the Voucher Distribution Lines is not user-friendly. Asides of being descending, Line #1 is still displayed at the top. This is confusing for the Data Entry Users, who could perform keying errors as the lines are in non-ordered display.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR:

When adding the additional new Distribution Lines, the system should place the rows by ascending order, so Distribution Line #1 is kept at the top, as already is, and from then onwards, Lines should be following an ascending order: #2, #3, #4, #5, and #6. Users should not be forced to click on the Line column header to change the order of the grid. The system should automatically display all the existing lines, and any new ones, in an ascending order.
