2000871 - Distance Validation between Input Value and Calculated Value


You observe that the input distance varies from the calculated distance while claiming mileage and you do not see a validation or warning message.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel & Expenses work center.
  2. Go to the Travel & Expenses view.
  3. Click on Request Trip Approval-Claim Travel Expenses.
  4. Select Claim Mileage button and enter the required fields.
  5. Click on Add and Edit Details button.
  6. Manually enter a false value in Distance field and click on Calculate button.

Though the value in the Calculated Distance field is different from that of the manually entered, there is no validation/warning shown.


The Google distance calculation is available to get some information about the distance, however the manually entered kilometers/miles are taken in the Expense Report, which may not be identical to the kilometers/miles calculated by Google. Currently there is no plan to check both kilometer/miles against each other.


Enter the kilometers/miles manually to claim mileage in an Expense Report because there is no validation across calculated value.
