Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Customer Center, Bill Search by Bill_No returns child account's bill instead of parent's account bill.

Steps to Reproduce :
1)  Open Search Panel and switch to Bills and Invoices in the 'Look For' drop down.
2)  Enter a bill number for a Parent account (which has Non Paying Child) in the Bill Number field and click Search.
3)  The resulting row returned shows a 'Due' amount which appears to be associated with the Non Paying Child account instead of the Parent account. When you highlight the result and click View Bill, the account that is opened is the Non Paying account instead of the Parent.

Note: Looks like Customer Center is just using the first account being returned from BILL_FIND instead of finding the parent of the hierarchy. This will be a problem since bill_no is the same for parent and child accounts in an hierarchy

Then when you click on the result for the bill, its reading the top row which is a child account. See below snippet of the cm pinlog :

Expected behavior :

1)  Due displayed in the result should be a total amount of the bill (sum of parent and child amounts).
2)  When clicking on the result entry, the parent account should be opened in Customer Center
