Scenario:
When an Expense approver tries to mark an expense as paid, he encounters the following error message.
Expense entry cannot be entered after the project's expense entry end date of xx/xx/xxxx.

Cause:
The issue occurs when an Expense sheet is associated with a project which has an Expense Incur End Date set to a historical date. In such a scenario the system will not allow the expense approver to mark the expense sheet as Paid if it was submitted after the Expense Incur end date.

Resolution:
We have to modify the Expense Incur end date on the Project.

Follow the steps listed below to edit the Expense Incur end date

  • Log in to the application as an administrator.
  • Click on the Project tab at the top.
  • In the project list click on the edit  icon beside the projects name.
  • Click on the name of the project under Project structure section – which further pulls up a new window.
  • Modify the dates on the Expense Incur end date field accordingly.
