Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expenses Work Center.
  2. Click on New Expense Report on Behalf.
  3. Select Employee XYZ. (XYZ represents the name of the Employee)
  4. Fill in the required Expense Report data and then click on Edit Reimbursement Settings.

Result: Only Bank Transfer is available for the field Reimbursement Method.

Your expectation is that you should also have Cash as Reimbursement Method available as you maintained this data in the Employee Master Data.


Even tough you maintained Cash within the Employee File, only Bank Transfer and Check are supported as Payment Methods in Expense Report Management.


This is currently how our system is designed and is expected. You have to decide if you want to use Bank Transfer or Check as Payment Method in an Expense Report.
