Last updated on SEPTEMBER 15, 2021

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN General Ledger - Version 9.1 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Can BUDGET_PERIOD in PS_JRNL_LN be used as other date field for other purpose (including custom) to keep values that are not related in any way to Budget or Commitment Control?
The requirement is to utilize another field in PS_JRNL_LN that is not being used by the system by default and enter in values, preferably dates or characters that resemble dates.
Note that site already used all delivered chartfields as well as the extension chartfields (CHARTFIELD1, CHARTFIELD2, and CHARTFIELD3).
It has been observed in test in Demo that BUDGET_PERIOD field in PS_JRNL_LN (GL Journal) or PS_KK_BUDGET_LN (KK Journal) is not being populated, regardless if Budget Period functionality is configured in the Budget Definition or not.
When is this field being used or populated in GL?
