“Update the journal line flexfield” for Journal Entry-G&C Cost Transfers

In Journal Entry-G&C Cost Transfers responsibility:

  • Complete the journal header
  • On the journal lines, enter the account information
  • Tab to the context flexfield at the end of the line
  • If you click ‘Enter’, ‘OK’ or ‘Cancel’ button to close out of the context box, you will receive an error “Update the journal line flexfield”
  • Click ‘OK’ to close the message pop-up box
  • If you close out of the context box a second time, the error is received again. This time, you are not able to click the ‘OK’ button to close out of the message
  • The screen is frozen and your work will be lost *Unlike receiving the double warning message when creating a journal entry that has a control total violation, the journal will not save any changes made*
  • The end-user will have to cancel their current session in BEN and create the journal entry again.

NOTE: The context flexfield information must be entered for every transaction line, including the offsetting line(s)
