2607663 - Generic Custom Code As Deviating Cost Assignment Is Missing During Expense Report Creation


You are using generic custom code criteria in the account assignment types during the creation of the Supplier Invoice, Customer Invoice & Journal Entry Vouchers etc., and you want to use the custom codes in expense reports as well but under the tab Deviating Cost Assignment, generic custom codes field is not available during the creation of expense reports.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expenses work center.
  2. Go to the Expense Reports view.
  3. Select New Expense report and fill in all the mandatory details.
  4. Go to the Expenses tab and then to the Deviating Cost Assignment subtab.

Generic Custom Code field itself is missing, however it can be seen on e.g.: invoices.


This is a technical limitation. Expense Report Management (ERM) does not use the reuse User Interface (UI) provided by Coding Block and rather uses their own UI's to show Account Assignment fields hence these fields are not available on the ERM UI's.

This would need adoption from ERM side to ensure that Custom fields show up if they have been assigned to any Coding Block type.


It is not possible to use Custom Code in ERM Coding Block, hence Generic Custom Code as a deviating cost assignment in expense reports is not available.
