DLOUT Creates .XML With <DIRECTLOANATTENDANCECOST> Tag Containing Decimals, When it Should not Include Decimals, Causing COD to Reject the File with Message 210, Invalid Schema (Doc ID 2859618.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 21, 2022

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise CS Financial Aid - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When running DLOUT, the SFA_COD_OUT step creates the file with the <DIRECTLOANATTENDANCECOST> Tag containing decimals, when decimals are not expected in that field, and will cause the file to reject with COD.

The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Financial Aid > File Management > COD Full Participant > Generate Direct Loan Data > Direct Loan Outbound
  2. Run the process with parameters Aid Year 2023 and new schema 5.0a.
  3. Click on Process Monitor, then once completed click the link for DLOUT, then the link for the SFA_COD_OUT step.
  4. Click link that says 'View Log/Trace', then click into the .xml or other data file in the file list.
  5. Search in the file for <DIRECTLOANATTENDANCECOST>, and note the values contain decimals. 


The issue is seen after applying the Aid Year 2022-2023 Updates for COD patches <Patch 33353624> (9.2) or <Patch 33064963> (9.0). See <Note 2854076.1> if more detailed information is needed on the patches.
