EEX 9.2: Fluid Expense Report Logic Flags Transaction Line in 'Expense Entry Error' Due to Missing Receipt, Even Though Expense Type Is Defined as an Exception That Never Requires One (Doc ID 2886146.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 12, 2023

Applies to:

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


At the Expenses Business Unit Definition level, the system has been configured so that Receipts are required on all Expenses, and that it should be enforced, preventing the Employees from submitting the transaction, should a receipt or its justification comments are missing. Additionally, some exceptions have been also configured, overriding the main settings, so that certain Expense Types will never require a receipt.

With this configuration in mind, the system will still flag the Expense Report Line in error, requiring a Receipt, or exception justification comments be entered, for an Expense Report Line that contains an Expense Type set as such an exception.

           - Expense Type = SUPPLY
           - Payment Type = (All Values)
           - Receipt Required = Never
