Reproducing the Issue

  3. Select the Failed/Not Started in the Show.
  4. Select a failed replication request.
  5. In the below Log Items tab, system shows the error Expense arrangement not valid for this period; define validity.

Cause

The error is caused by the late Complete Transmission Start Date in the General tab.
