Issue/Introduction

I am trying to create a transaction entry for a project and I am getting the following error: REVMGR-20822:Investment is missing Location/Department data. Both the project and Resource are financially enabled, so I'm not sure why this error is occuring.

Cause

The problem was that the location and deparment fields can remain blank when creating a non-labor (material ) resource transaction when the WIP setup for location and department are set to "Project". However, both of these fields must have values defined when WIP setup for location and department is set to "Resource". This is by design.

Environment

Release:
Component: ODFNM

Resolution

Unless you have a business requirement for your cost plans as based on Resources, you can configure the location and department in WIP setup to "Project". Then you will not receive the error message when you create a Transaction without the deparment and location values defined.
