EEX9.2: Expense Report Can Be Submitted With Invalid Project Activity Value (Doc ID 2185832.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Expense Report can be submitted with invalid project activity value
An expense report that is copied from a travel authorization can be submitted successfully even if the project activity value is inactive. This leads to commitment control and accounting entry issues.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Create a travel authorization. On the default accounting select project FIN_PROJECT and Activity ID 000000000001. Save, submit and approve travel authorization.
2) Set activity ID to 'inactive' status using the project activity general information component.
3) Create a new expense report, and copy travel authorization from step 1 into the expense report. Review the default accounting. The activity ID of 0000000000001 will be copied on the report, although that value will not be available in the list of prompt values.
4) Save and submit report. No error that an invalid value on the expense report accounting is shown and the report is submitted.
