2560041 - Expense Report Cover Sheet Form Template Does Not Show Cost Assignment When It Is a Project WBS Element


You've opened the Expense Report Cover Sheet form template for a certain expense report which has Cost Assignment as Project WBS Element, however, while checking the Cost Assignment field in the template you notice that it is blank.

Remark: this KBA applies to customer built/customized Expense Report Cover Sheet form templates.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Auditing work center.
  2. Go to Expense Reports view.
  3. Search and open the concerned Expense Report for which you want to open the cover sheet PDF.
  4. Click Print Preview.
  5. Click Expense Report Cover Sheet.

Notice that under Report Summary section, Trip Data sub-section, field Cost Assignment is blank.


In the customized form you've built you are using the wrong data binding for the field txtCostCenter.


You should use data binding $.AccountingCodingBlockDistribution.CostObjectTypeDescription instead.
This field is filled correctly with the Project WBS Element in your case.
