EEX 9.2: How To Submit a Travel Authorization Whose Accounting Date Falls Within an Already Closed Accounting Period in Expenses? (Doc ID 2891939.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 24, 2022

Applies to:

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


Employee is getting an Error Message when trying to submit an existing Travel Authorization created on a prior month. The message is stating that the Accounting Date of the transaction needs to be updated due to closed Accounting Period.

    1.- Log into the FSCM Online Application as affected Expenses User
    2.- Navigate to: Employee Self Service > Travel and Expenses Center > Travel Authorizations > Create/Modify
    3.- Open the Travel Authorization transaction created last month
    4.- Perform any needed changes, and save the transaction
    5.- Submit the Travel Authorization
    6.- The system throws an Error Message

    " Please enter or update the following information:
      Accounting Detail -- Accounting period is not open for EX product and GL BU on distribution line 1. "

At this stage, the affected Travel Authorization cannot be submitted for approval, nor the Accounting Date can be modified. This is causing delays on the approvals of this estimate of expenses, and eventually the creation of its Expense Report.

How could this be addressed? What steps should the Employee follow to allow the submission of the transaction?
