IFS application allows the addition of erroneous characters when creating manual supplier invoices, which can have an impact on successful SAF-T XML file generation.

Description:

The current behavior of the IFS application allows the addition of erroneous characters when creating manual supplier invoices. However, this can lead to issues with successful SAF-T XML file generation.

As an example, if we added an erroneous character (Ex: Unicode character without visual representation) as a part of an invoice number, when creating a manual supplier invoice. After that when attempting to generate the Norwegian SAF-T XML file for that specific period, the system does not allow successful creation due to the presence of the erroneous character in that invoice.

Steps to recreate the example:

  • Create manual supplier invoice including an erroneous character, when defining the invoice number. Here attached a snap of an external supplier invoice template including a Unicode character as erroneous character in Inv. No tab.  And update it to the GL.

 

 

  • After that, generate the Norwegian SAF-T XML file by using Audit Interface Assistant tool for the particular period.

 

  • SAF-T XML file will generate unsuccessfully with an error.

 

 

Workaround for successful SAF-T XML file generation:

  • Ensure that the system prevents the addition of characters that do not have visual representations when generating SAF-T XML files. In the current context, the system does not allow for successful SAF-T XML file generation if there are any files which include characters without visual representations.
  • If an erroneous character is mistakenly added, as in this scenario, as a workaround we recommend performing a data repair to remove that character from the file and then you can generate the XML file Successfully.
