EAM:When A Financial Asset Is Created By CapitalizationThreshold Validation (AM_CAPVAL), PC Chartfields Are Dropped. (Doc ID 2674869.1)

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


When a Financial Asset is created by the Capitalization Threshold Validation process (AM_CAPVAL), the Project Costing (PC) Chartfields are dropped.

The customer creates assets through the PC, PO and AP interfaces. An asset may be created as a Physical Asset because it falls below the Capitalization Threshold when it should have been created as a Financial Asset. A Capitalization Threshold with a lower threshold may be used to capitalize the asset via the Capitalization Threshold Validation process. When the financial asset is created, the PC Chartfields are not passed to the ps_cost table, and in turn, are not passed to the ps_depreciation and ps_dist_ln tables. 

The expectation is that the PC Chartfields are passed to the ps_cost table from the ps_cost_non_cap table.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1) Set up the Installation options, AM BU, AM Profile for capitalization threshold processing. Define the Capitalization Threshold.
2) Create a PO with a total cost that does not meet the threshold level for capitalization. Set up the PO for Asset creation. Enter PC chartfields onto the PO.
3) Copy the PO to a Receipt and save. Do not interface into AM.
4) Copy the PO/Receipt onto a Voucher. Verify that the PC Chartfields have been passed to the voucher. Set up the voucher for Asset creation.
5) Interface the Voucher into AM. FAD rows are generated and loaded into AM.
6) Lower the capitalization threshold.
7) Run the Capitalization Threshold Validation process (AM_CAPVAL) to capitalize the asset. This generates CAP interface rows.
8) Load the CAP interface rows into AM.
9) Verify that the PC Chartfields are not passed to the ps_cost table transactions by AM_CAPVAL.
