EEX9.2: Chartfield Values Are Not Defaulted Correctly When Itemizing Hotel / Lodging Expense Line in Fluid Expense Report (Doc ID 2645574.1)

Last updated on MARCH 04, 2020

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

The accounting fields / Chartfields are not defaulting correctly when using Hotel Wizard to split bill by Expense Type.

Setup:

Provide Chartfield values for an Hotel / Lodging Expense Type
Navigation: Set Up Financials / Supply Chain > Product Related > Expenses > Purchase > Expense Type - Expense Type 2 tab.

Steps:

1) Create a Fluid Expense Report.
2) Add Hotel / Lodging line.
3) Validate the Accounting / Distribution information.  The values are defaulted from Expense Type. Do not make any change.
4) Itemize Hotel / Lodging to 2 lines - Room Charges and Misc. Charges.
5) Save the Expense Report.
6) Review the Accounting / Distributions.

Expected result:
On itemizing the entry without doing any manual overwrites to Chartfields, the itemized line for Misc. Charge will get defaulted from Expense type for Misc. Charge.
The Chartfields related to Hotel / Lodging (Room Charges) should not change.


Actual result:
The Chartfield values are not defaulted properly for Hotel / Lodging (Room Charges) lines.

Note: In case Chartfields are manually overwritten for Hotel / Lodging and then user itemize the line, the new line for Misc. Charge will default all Chartfields from the parent row except Account and Alt Account. Those 2 fields will still be defaulted from Expense type defaults.
