Last updated on FEBRUARY 24, 2022

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

New Form is created and Activated. Definition ID is created for the Form with the Approval Process ID of EOFM that has an Effective Date of 01/01/1900. New Stage with Path and Step is added to the Definition ID.

Existing Form is then modified by adding a new field. Checked the Approval Process setup for Process ID = EOFM. The Process ID now has two rows for the above Definition ID, which is as follows:

Displayed the new row with Effective Date = 01/02/1900. The new Stage with Path and Step that was added to the Process ID with Effective Date = 01/01/1900 is not copied into the new Process ID with Effective Date = 01/02/1900.

Expected the new Form to use the original Process ID with Effective Date = 01/01/1900 and not create a new row with Effective Date = 01/02/1900.

10. Checked new row with Effective Date = 01/02/1900 and Status as of Effective Date = Active
