EAM: Request Warning When Accounting Date Is To Be Changed By GL Open Period (Doc ID 2208843.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 29, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Asset Management - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The system is making a date change without giving the user the opportunity to accept or reject that change. Please issue a warning message BEFORE a financial transaction is saved if the Accounting Date is going to be changed as a result of the GL Open Period. Currently, no warning is issued. The Accounting Date is changed at the same time the transaction is saved and the user does not have the opportunity to cancel the transaction if it will record to the incorrect accounting period or fiscal year.

Expected Behavior
------------------------------
The expectation is that the system will warn the user that a date change is about to be made before saving the change giving the user the opportunity to back out of the transaction.

Steps
-----------
This issue can be replicated by performing the following steps:

1) Create an asset.
2) Update the open periods for AM to the current period.
3) Update the open periods for GL to a period beyond the AM current period.
4) Enter a Recat Transaction. Before saving tab to the main transaction.
5) Save the recat transaction. Note that the accounting date is changed to the first day of the first open period for GL.

Business Impact
--------------------------
When the transaction is saved with the changed accounting date, the depreciation for the asset transaction is impacted.
