E-PIA: Save Warning For Long Edit Boxes Even If Nothing Was Changed (Doc ID 2165037.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.54 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After an upgrade from a lower PeopleTools version, if a Long Edit Box field contains carriage return (Char(13) ), the component is marked as changed when displayed in PIA. The save warning message is displayed, even if nothing is changed in the page.
It’s only happening in data that already existed before the upgrade.  If a change is made on a record that was created before the upgrade, the error no longer happens for that one. if adding a new entry the error doesn’t happen as well.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1.  Navigate to Set Up HRMS -> Foundation tables -> Job Attributes -> Job Code Table.
2. Bring up a jobcode
3. Click the “Display Job Descr in Modal Window” button beside the Job Descr:
4. Then click “Return” after the modal window opens.
5. Message displayed: ""Cannot change current or history records unless in Correction mode.""
