    ACQ/REP: Invoice amounts exceed SIF character limit

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 7.0.3

    Bug Report Form 16384-12993
    Module(s): Acquisitions, Reporter
    Server platform(s) affected: all
    Release(s) replicated in: all
    Last version without bug (if applicable): n/a

    Expected results: When sending a voucher to the print file in Acquisitions, Acquisitions would alert the user if there are fields that exceed the SIF file’s character limits.

    Actual results: Vouchers/check requests can be submitted to the acqnotes.*.inp file if the invoice amount exceeds the limit in the SIF, and the operator is not notified that the amount exceeds the character limit.

    Fields in excess of the character limit in the SIF file will keep the file from printing in Reporter.

    Workflow implications: Reporter won’t process the file and it may not be obvious to the operator why.

    Replication steps:
    In Acquisitions, approve an invoice with an invoice amount with more than 10 characters (the character limit for this field in the SIF).
    When prompted send the invoice to print. You won’t see a warning or any notice that this field exceeds the character limit in the SIF.
    In Reporter, process and print Acquisitions notices. Reporter will not be able to process the file until the invoice is edited to comply with the character limit or is removed.

    Other information: This also applies to line item amount and fund total fields.

    Workaround: Break the invoice expenses into 2 or more invoices so no one invoice exceeds the character limit for the invoice amount.
