Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Travel and Expenses Work center.
  2. Go to Expense Reports.
  3. Find Expense Report > Preview.
  4. In the Preview you could see that the Per Diems is Calculated only for the First Day and Ignored for the Second day


This is the intended and correct system behavior according to German Law in case of Expense Report.Expense Report is a two-day trip without lodging.In this case, the absence time of two days are calculated together as only one interval. If this one absence interval includes more than 24 hours,this is in fact as per definition in ByDesign Travel & Expense always the Per Diem of the first day is considered while the 2nd day will be neglected.
