Symptoms


According to the user guide if Installation Option Setting Accounting Date Freeze option is set to Always Change then the batch BILLING will use the Current Business date as the accounting date on the bill segments that it freezes.

1) ### Detailed Problem Statement ###
The problem starts when we run the BILLING batch on a date which is open for the accounting date mentioned in the bill cycle code, But we have chosen the installation option Accounting Date Freeze option is set to always change

2) ### Steps to Reproduce ###
a) Choose the Installation Option Setting Accounting Date Freeze option is to “Always Change”
b) Create a Bill cycle code with start date as 21st april 2011 and end date as 06th February 2012 and accounting date as 21st april 2011 and estimation date as 21st september 2011
c) Update this bill cycle code in one of the account
d) update a bill after date to all the account in a date in 2012 so that that account is not processed by the billing batch
e) Create a classic accounting calendar for each month with the start date as first of the month and the end date as last date of the month
f) Run the billing batch with a business date in June 2011 say 9th June 2011
g) It will create a TODO

According to the user guide if the installation option is set to Always Change then the batch BILLING it will use the Current Business date as the accounting date on the bill segments that it freezes which should be 06-09-2011 which is open on the accounting period 6 of the accounting calendar but it is comparing with the accounting date of the bill cycle code which is not correct
