EGL: Journal Copy Process Generated a New Journal ID if You Get Out of Journal Copy and Go Back in AND Use Next Journal ID is Checked ON in the User Profile (Doc ID 2849345.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 26, 2022

Applies to:

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


When copying a journal, the next journal ID is assigned BEFORE the process is run.  If the user gets out of the page (by choice or gets kicked out due to faulty home internet connection) and then goes BACK into the Copy Journal process the journal ID it had assigned previously, is skipped and a new journal ID is assigned.  This only happens if the user has 'Use Next Journal ID' checked ON in User Preferences.

This results in skipped journal IDs and can cause an audit issue for some customers.

1. Go to user preferences and click ON ‘Use Next Journal ID’ for VP1 (Setup Financials/Supply Chain -> Common Definitions -> User Preferences -> Define User Preferences)
2. Go to Copy journal and choose a journal to copy – and save the run control. Note that new journal Id is assigned. Do not process - instead get out of the page.
3) Pull up the copy journal run control page that you just created. Note: New Journal ID is set back to NEXT.
4) Save the page.  New Journal ID is different than previously.
