Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Auditing Workcenter.
  2. Select the Expense Reports Subview.
  3. Click on Create Expense Report.
  4. Fill in the required details (, such as Employee ID, Purpose and so on).
  5. Click on Save and Open.
  6. Click on Claim mileage.
  7. In From input the starting postcode of the trip and in To input the destination postcode. Total Distance is XYZ (XYZ represents distance).
  8. Tick Roundtrip and Total Distance is ABC and not equal to twice a single trip. (ABC represents a different distance )


The system takes various elements in consideration when calculating a roundtrip such as quicker ways or one way streets. Therefore, it can happen that the total mileage of a roundtrip differs from twice the single trip.


The calculation is correct. This is an expected system behaviour. Two single trips do not necessarily equal a roundtrip.
