Empty expense claim report

I am using version 16.8.3 and trying to implement the expense claims to record the use of a private car. Everything seems to be accurate. However the expense claim report shows no records. I expect this is a fault as the same thing occurred with billable hours in a previous version.

first of all greetings to the team working on this project!

i have similar problem, but not exactly the same as yours:

seems that version 16.8.3 (windows 7 64x) has lots of bugs, and there are miss-linking among fields especially inventory items when editing for example the “Unit Name” of any inventory item, it appears as “Quantity on hand” on the main inventory items screen.
when trying to print an invoice, the item name will never be shown trying all liquid variable possibilities including item.name, item.unit_name, …etc nothing will appear there except for the description, discount, …etc

i tried even to use older version by exporting the data to the older version on linux mint 17.2 cinnamon 64x, and the bug transmitted as well to the newly exported data…

i think there is a problem with some fields names “linking issues” may be!
in the table of “inventory items” when exporting data as “tsv” file, there is a “key” field with some coded content, when you fill in the column headed by “Unit_name” the contents affects “quantity on hand” field on manager… and so on…

very confusing actually!!

Expense claims report will only show expense claims by “Expense claim payers”. It won’t show figures for expense claims by employees or members.

This is not a bug. Unit name is simply shown under Quantity column… If unit name is “Kg” and quantity is “5”, then under “Quantity on hand” column you will show “5 Kg”.

Any particular reason that the expense claims report is not showing for employees or members.

Yes. It was designed that way. Other types of expense claims payers are reported elsewhere. The purpose of the report is to verify reimbursement status for payers for whom there is no other mechanism. For employees, this is accomplished via the Employee clearing account. For members, no reimbursement is needed. See the guide:

Look at the section titled “What happens after the expense claim is created?” But if you want a single report for all payer types, read the final paragraph of the guide…

Thanks for your helpful suggestion.
