AP9.2.Budget Check (FS_BP) Process Doesn't Consider Source Transaction Processing Sequence When Running (Doc ID 2962472.1)

Last updated on JULY 25, 2023

Applies to:

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


When Budget checking ,using the FS_BP processor, 3 vouchers with descending accounting dates whose total amount > budget amount and having set up the Source Transactions Order by Accounting date, the 2nd voucher is ending in error with “exceeding Budget tolerance” instead of the 1st voucher – as it
has the latest accounting date and exceeds available balance.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Go to Commitment Control> Define Control Budgets>Source Transactions for AP_VOUCHER and set the Order by ACCOUNTING_DT on tab Fields.
  2. Budget Definition ( Commitment Control>Define Control Budgets>Budget Definitions).
  3. Ledger for a Unit for Us005 (Setup Financial>Business Unit related>General Ledger> Ledger for a Unit) and add the APPROP ledger group and uncheck the detail.
  4. Enter a budget journal for account 500000, fund F100 and department 14000 for US005 and APPROP ledger group , amount 1500 USD ( Commitment Control>Budget Journals>Enter budget journals).
  5. Check Budget overview (commitment Control>Review Budget Activities> Budget Overview).
  6. Create 3 Vouchers in Descending Order of the Accounting Date with (Voucher 1 with amount 1000 USD and acctg_date =15th May 2023, Voucher 2 with amount 500 USD and acctg_date =14th May 2023, Voucher 3 with amount 500 USD and acctg_date =13th May 2023) and Save them.
    (Account Payables>Vouchers>Add/Update>Regular Entry).
  7. Run Budget Check Process (Account Payables>Batch Processes>Voucher>Voucher Budget check).
  8. Process ends in Warning with 2nd voucher ending in error „Exceeds Budget tolerance”, instead of the 1st voucher as expected.
