EGM / EPC : Expense Transactions Are Receiving Budget Exceptions - “No Budget Exists” When Grants Project Budgets Are Reversed Because They Were Entered in Incorrect Ledger Group Initially. (Doc ID 2820574.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 01, 2023

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.


Grant Budget has an incorrect ledger group associated with it for example CC_PRJ_DTL. It was then changed to the correct ledger group for example CC_GRT_DTL. Any new expense journals created and budget checked are not getting budget checked with the error below.

Possible Replication Step:

  1. Create a Project /Activity in a BU. The GL BU associated has multiple commitment ledgers associated in "Ledger for a Unit".
  2. Create a Project Budget for one particular ledger group(let's say CC_PRJ_DTL) and Finalize. Let's assume this is an incorrect ledger that the user should not be using.
  3. Users think this ledger group used was incorrect.
  4. Users corrected the Grants Project Budget by creating a negative budget against the wrong ledger group in step 2 and created a positive budget for the right ledger (Let's say CC_GRT_DTL).
  5. Now create either expense transactions in GL using navigation: General Ledger > Journals > Journal Entry >Create/Update Journal Entries, the transactions fail with budget checking with the above error.
