By LuciaC-Oracle on Dec 20, 2012
A number of customers are experiencing the following error after applying the US & CANADA END OF YEAR 2012 STATUTORY UPDATE II patch, and while running HRglobal.drv:
"ORA-20001: You cannot set the SAVE_RUN_BALANCE flag to 'N' or Null whilst valid run balances exist for the defined balance."
The US & CANADA END OF YEAR 2012 STATUTORY UPDATE II patches are:
- Release 11i: Patch 16000000
- Release 12.0: Patch 16000001:R12.PAY.A
- Release 12.1: Patch 16000001:R12.PAY.B.
In the readme for these patches, in the post install steps, the following is noted:
This patch delivers change to disable the Run Balances for Defined Balance "Gross Earnings Assignment Quarter to Date". During HRGlobal Installation, if Valid Run Balances are found for this Defined Balance, then the process will fail with below error:
ERROR at line 1; ORA-20001: You cannot set the SAVE_RUN_BALANCE flag to 'N' or Null whilst valid run balances exist for the defined balance.
In order to prevent this error during HRGlobal Installation, it is necessary to execute below mentioned SQL Update Statement before HRGlobal Installation to invalidate the Run Balances present for this Defined Balance.
UPDATE pay_balance_validation pbv
SET run_balance_status = 'I'
WHERE pbv.run_balance_status <> 'I'
AND pbv.defined_balance_id IN
FROM pay_defined_balances pdb,
WHERE pdb.legislation_code = 'US'
AND pdb.balance_type_id = pbt.balance_type_id
AND pbt.balance_name = 'Gross Earnings'
AND pbt.legislation_code = 'US'
AND pdb.balance_dimension_id = pbd.balance_dimension_id
AND pbd.database_item_suffix = '_ASG_QTD'
AND pbd.legislation_code = 'US');
Please follow the steps as given in the patch readme to resolve this issue.
