2658836 - Work Order for Future Dated Contingent Worker Returns Empty Values on Edit Work Order Information


When editing a work order for a future dated contingent worker, the work order returns null values.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

  2. Click on Take Action -> Edit Work Order Information:

  3. The work order returns null / empty values:

This is a current limitation on MDF. The future dated work order can be viewed on the effective date using the 'as of date' feature but the future dated work order cannot be edited via Take Action -> Edit Work Order Information as it is not designed to take as of date.


The only option that exists to edit future/past dated work orders is via 'history' (clock icon). Please use history to edit future dated work orders.
