Budget Item Setup In Grants and Project Costing Will Not Allow Wildcards Upon Modification (Doc ID 2579027.1)

Last updated on JULY 21, 2020

Applies to:

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


When adding a new Budget Item, the chartfields default to wildcards. If a specific value is then entered for a chartfield and saved, for most of the chartfields, it is no longer possible to put a wildcard back into the field. Also, if new chartfields are added to the chart of accounts design after implementation, these new chartfields cannot then be set to wildcards on existing budget items.

This can be replicated as follows:

  1. Navigate to either Setup Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Project Costing> General Options > Budget Items


    Setup Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Grants > Budget Items

  2. Add a new Budget Item and save. Note that all the GL chartfields defaulted to wildcards on the page.
  3. Update the chartfields to specific values on the budget item and save.
  4. Update the chartfields back to wildcards. Most of the chartfields generate an "Invalid Value" error and cannot be reset to wildcards
