Reproducing the Issue

In this scenario, we will be using Account ABC and Sales Order XYZ.
(ABC represents the ID of the Account and XYZ represents the ID of the Sales Order).

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Lists view.
  3. Open the Sales Order Volume Extended report.
  4. Remove Employee Responsible value.
  5. Enter the Account ABC from the Sales Order XYZ.
  6. Run the report. 

The Employee Responsible field has a # (hashtag) instead of the expected value.


For expense items, an employee responsible is determined from the actual expenses that is recorded and invoiced to the customer.

The same behavior is also applied to Sales Quote Item report.


This is expected system behavior as reports use the party information on the item node level.
