Award Posting Error 166: 'Term not found in Disbursement Plan for this Transaction' (Doc ID 2708593.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 07, 2020

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to post manually awarded item types, a message appears stating "Award Posting process encountered error(s). (14420, 62)"

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

  1. Navigate to Financial Aid > Awards > Award Processing > Assign Awards to a Student > Student Aid Package.
  2. Enter item type.
  3. Click Validate button. If successfully validated, click through pop-up message.
  4. Click Post button.

The error may occur only with a particular group of item types, and may not be consistent - where sometimes the process works.

After following the instructions in <Note 2507975.1>, to produce an .out file of the process as it fails, the following additional detail is noted in this file:

"Message Set Number = 14420+
Message Number = 00166+
