Last updated on MAY 19, 2022

Applies to:

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


Using "Import Now" with Spreadsheet Journal Import - template JRNL1 from 9.2 Image 13 - suddenly began getting error "A name was started with an invalid character."

When we tried importing the journal "one" line at a time it works for the lines individually, but we do not want to import 500+ separate journals in one day.

"A name was started with an invalid character."

1. User receives journal lines from another system in an excel spreadsheet.
2. User then opens a previous JRNL1 template and copies in the above journal lines plus minor updates to the journal date, journal id, etc.
3. User then runs Import Now and gets reported error
