Combination of expenses and Mileage Rates

Hello All,

When trying to add toll expenses and claim Mileage the system does not allow.

So how can this validation be deactivated. Is it only from the backend..? the way it is for per diems..?

Kindly suggest.

Thank you!

    Hi Cryssal,

    Which country version is this in?

    Also, is the 'Toll' that is being used a pre-delivered expense type, or one created by the customer?

    Further, what is the expense category assigned to the expense type, and the error message that is seen (if any)?

    The above may help answer your query.

    Kind Regards,
    Attreyee

    • Hi Cryssal,

      Thanks for the details.

      However, from your explanation and the screenshot, it is not clear what expense types the expense report contains, and therefore what could be the reason for the error.

      'Private Card Expenses' is not an expense category that we deliver from a localization-perspective. Have credit card expenses been added to the expense report? Have mileage details been entered correctly?

      To investigate in more detail, we would need to take a look at the system. Could you forward us the incident (or contact me directly)?

      Regards,
      Attreyee

    Hello All,

    From a pre-analysis it was observed that there is an issue here. The backend configuration change had no effect on the error message that popped up in the ER with a combination of mileage and expense.Issue is under investigation. The thread will be updated accordingly.

    Note: Expense Category was "Private Car Expenses".

    Thanks.

      There is a backend table which is predelivered by SAP and for all countries besides BR, DK and SE the value is set to <space>, i.e. for most countries a combination of expenses and mileage rates is generally not allowed.

      The software correction solves a problem that only appeared for the three countries  BR, DK and SE where the value is set to ‘1’. i.e. a combination of expenses and mileage rates should be allowed. The problem was that for these countries the error message that prevents input of both expenses and mileage rates was appearing erroneously and this is corrected by the software correction.

      After we complete a detailed test phase we will implement this correction to the systems and test the functionality again. We estimate the deployment of the correction to take place on 22nd of January, 2015.

      Thanks.
