Issue:
User encounters an error message when attempting to create Transaction Entries.

 The error message reads: ERROR System error. Contact system administrator. 

Nothing is written to the logs.
Cause:
This may be caused if the PO Number is more than 30 characters.
In the database the PO Number field is Data Type VARCHAR2(30 BYTE)

In some cases you may not even be able to store 30 characters as some characters take up more than one BYTE.  This normally can be an issue if you are using non-standard characters or you have a non-standard character set for you database.




 
Resolution:
Make sure you PO Number field is 30 characters or less.
