What log-in do I use when uploading?
To upload or use chart lookups in webADI, sign in using your Oracle username and password, the same one you may use for eProcurement or Procurement Card approvals. Contact “Oracle Processing” if you are not sure what this user name and password are, or to reset your password.
Why don’t I see Oracle->Upload available in Excel?
Macros must be enabled when the template is opened to be able to upload. Save your work, and close and re-open your template. Look for the Security Warning and choose to Enable Macros. If the Security Warning does not appear when the template is opened, check your Excel settings per the first FAQ.
Why am I getting an “invalid journal entry line” message when there is no information on that line?
Even if there is no chart string or dollar amounts on a line, if the line has a flag under the Upl column (far left), ADI will try to upload the line. Double-click the flag to make it go away and this error should not recur.
I have completed data entry but the Oracle Upload command doesn't work. What's wrong?
Make sure that you have pressed Enter or move the cursor off the cell into which you have finished entering data. Otherwise Excel thinks you are still editing that cell and won't allow Upload.
My entry begins uploading but “stalls”.
Check your Internet Explorer (IE) 7 or 8 settings as described in the first FAQ. These settings need to be adjusted even if you do not use IE as your default browser.
Why is my chart string invalid/incomplete?
Make sure that you have started entering the value for Entity in the Entity column, not the Upl column to the far left. The Upl column should be left blank; the system may put a flag symbol there but the user won't enter data there. Each chart string segment should be entered in a separate cell with no symbols such as periods or dashes included. If a chart string value begins with zero and this gets dropped (or Subactivity 0000 converts to 0), re-enter the number with a single quote ( ' ) before it so it will be interpreted as text and the beginning zeros will be preserved.
