Last updated on JULY 01, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN General Ledger - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 9.2 version, Chartfields

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When adding a new project ID by Chartfield Request and setting the Field Value with more characters than the customized length set by the user on the Project length on Standard Configuration Chartfields, the request is saved without any warning/error message and goes through approver that can approve also without any warning/error message.

For example, project's length in Standard Configuration Chartfield has the default value of 15 characters and the user, changes to 6 characters, runs Full Configuration and it is still able to add a Project with more than 6 characters by Chartfield Request.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
The user should not be able to add any project ID that does not met the length set in Standard Configuration Chartfield.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Disable Project Costing module
2. Change the length of Project to 6 characters
3. Run Full Configuration
4. Create a new Chartfield Request
5. Set the Field Value with more than 6 characters
6. Click Save and Submit for approval
7. Log in as approver and approve the request
